Lollygate and the Decline of the CDSCC after CSIRO

Posted on December 18, 2012. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Canberra’s Radio 2CC recently interviewed former CSIRO/CDSCC employee Jack Hoffman, known more recently for having been dismissed for a Big Mac.  Jack discusses his experiences in the period leading up to his effective dismissal, including the decline of the workplace environment, subsequent to the take over of the the Canberra Deep Space Communications Centre (CDSCC) by the CSIRO.  This is a stellar example of how the imposition of one toxic and highly-dysfunctional organisation upon another healthy working environment can have disturbing results.

The reference refers to “Lollygate” refers to Jack’s experiences of workplace mobbing and almost universal ridicule as a result of a dental injury he suffered in the workplace.  How Jack’s injury came to be known far and wide throughout the workplace and the privacy implications of the disclosure of such information to the general staff body has still not been appropriately explained by the CDSCCs’ Human Resources Manager!
