Treasurer Spaulding Tells State He Won’t Be Using Marshal86 Spy Software To Monitor His Employees!

In a June 8 memo to the HR and IT head honchos, Treasurer Jeb Spaulding writes:

"After careful consideration, I have elected to implement the site blocking component office-wide but to limit the site monitoring to my deputy (Beth Pearce) and me. I will not agree to the site monitoring or the establishment of a database with the ability to collect such information about our staff, as I believe it undermines the trust we have developed and is, in fact, counter to the establishment of a productive work environment."

Kudos to the Treasurer for standing up for his employees! Others???
