    Nope, it's not illegal. Your best bet is to pursue this problem through in-house methods.

      Thank you.
      Can you recomend one or two in-house method?

      The manager is constatly walking around and asking people what they are doing and why they are doing it. If the employee isn't at their cubicle/desk he is Calling on cell phone.
      Should this be left alone as "his style" or should this be brought to the attention to HR?
      Thnx again

        Nothing he is doing is illegal and even if you bring it to HR, if they do not feel it is inappropriate they have no obligation to do anything about it. I can think of situations in which what he is doing is entirely appropriate, as a matter of fact.

        If you think otherwise, you are free to bring it to the attention of his boss or to HR (the in-house methods Sockeye was talking about). Just be aware that there is no guarantee anything is going to change.
        The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
