Name-Tag Legislation in Toronto Petition

All of us know that most working places requires one to wear a name tag. Of course it is usually only the first name of the person so it does not affect much right? The customers can not check where you live or your phone number or get hold of your personal information by just knowing your first name right? Wrong. In this new age of computerized technology where internet dominates, it very easy to stalk the person you want to with just knowing the first name. By knowing it, one can get to know the last name of the person and maybe a photo for confirmation. (eg. Facebook, Friendster, etc.) Of course freedom of information is our rights as customers to know about things that are useful to us. However, does knowing the employee's name actually help anything? Does it harm the customer for not knowing the bank teller who helped you withdrew money or the waiter/waitress who poured wine for you at a restaurant for dinner? If one want to say good things about the waiter/waitress or the bank teller just point or tell the time and which booth. I am sure that the manager would know who that person is. Only the manager needs to know the names of his/her employees because he/she governs them, not letting them do anything bad or wrong and also to praise them or maybe gift them if they did something right. If one says that if makes the customer-employee relationship better then what about just substituting the name with numbers? Is it not what most universities do? Your student number is your identity, is your name. It also secures and protects all your personal information, including your name. By knowing this number, stalkers and others can not get anything out of it, therefore the employee will be safe. Safe from being stalked on the internet and real life. Safe from personal informations being leaked out. Knowing the name of the employee only adds to the danger for the employee and there is no gain from it.

By using name tags, it infringes the employee's rights to life, liberty and security as said in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms article 7. Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of the person and the right not to be deprived thereof except in accordance with the principless of fundamental justice. (CCRF, Article7) By knowing the first of employees, customers, stalkers and other people can find out other personal information about that employee, like last name and a confirmation picture as I have mentioned before with tools like Facebook and others. This puts the employee in danger of being stalked or followed, etc. To avoid this, name tags should be removed because name tags infringes the employee's freedom of security. Therefore, I conclude here that name tags should be removed. Either have none or replace by number tags similar to the student number system in high schools and universities.
