  • Punished for not having photo taken

    Myself (and other employees) declined (politely) to have our photos taken for an annual report. We were then punished by our operations manager who stormed up to our desks and demanded loudly that we take extra work because we had let the team down. This is despite the fact that that we had manned the office phone line and worked on our tasks while the photographer was taking photos of others. This happened less than half an hour before we were due to finish work and was the last working day of the week for a number of us. No reference was given to the fact that I have childcare responsibilities and had to leave on time to pick my child up.

    Can our employer discipline us for not having a photo taken? Is it not our right to refuse permission for this?

    The wider background is that this is a very unhappy workplace. Previous photos taken were used for purposes other than what was originally stated by a partner organisation and we were given no guarantees as to the scope of use for these new photos. Personally I informed my manager twice that I felt really uncomfortable and anxious about having my picture taken and was given no reassurance but just punished in front of the open office. There are also LOTS of other issues unrelated to this but any advice on the photography issue would be hugely appreciated. Thanks in advance!
