Recently a topic has surfaced at my work place, which is a provincial
government site. The subject centers around some junked computer parts that
a work took home, witness by the manager of that department. The parts ended
up in his basement for at least 8 months, after which they found there way
onto EBay, by yet another employee, not involved with the removal of the
computer parts. At the moment the question is have there been any laws
broken? And who is culpable the Manger who witness parts being taken from
the garbage, the employee who took the parts home for 8 months or the
employee who ultimately sold those parts on EBay? I'm wondering about the
the legal owner of garbage?
Looking forward to comments.
