Whistleblower dismissed at Marks & Spencer

Issue No. 2118

Marks & Spencer (M&S) conducts surveillance of its staff, who live in a culture of fear, according to Tony Goode who was dismissed by the company after speaking to journalists.

Goode, a former customer loyalty manager, lost his job after leaking details of changes to redundancy terms for all M&S workers.

Maria Ludkin, the legal officer for the GMB union – which has taken up the case – says it emerged that the company monitored every keystroke made by staff on computers.

M&S said that the surveillance claims are “utter nonsense” and dismissed the allegations as the “lone voice of a disgruntled former employee”.
