Yahoo, CEO Mayer, VPN logs, working from home

Caveat Cooperatorem! (Warning Worker!) --

Yahoo CEO Mayer checked VPN logs before banning home working - Network World: "Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer came up with her controversial and hugely unfashionable policy of outlawing home working after doing something almost unheard of for a US CEO - she checked the VPN logs to see whether anyone was slacking. According to the reporter who broke the news of the ban, Mayer told told a staff meeting last week that the logs told her that some employees weren't using the VPN often enough.  The reasoning was simple and non-technical; if employees weren't using the VPN they couldn't be working or contributing to Yahoo as a company."
