Some tactics used to keep you Blacklisted include interfering with communications, & slander. Also there are lists & software packages used to check these lists for suspected terrorists, threats to national security, etc.(109)

Apparently this is a flourishing business & some organizations are required by law to use it.

The Surveillance-Industrial Complex:

How the American Government Is Conscripting Businesses and Individuals in the Construction of a Surveillance Society

The American Civil Liberties Union http://www.aclu.org, August 2004, Written by Jay Stanley

An entire industry has sprung up to produce software that makes it easier or companies to enforce the government s blacklists and other mandates. An example is Homeland Tracker, produced by a subsidiary of the giant database company Choicepoint to help any business comply with OFAC and USA PATRIOT Act regulations. The manual proudly touts the software s ability to get identity verification, check individual names, scan customer files and build personal accept and deny lists (otherwise known as blacklists).

Federal law enforcement have sent watch lists to corporations containing names of individuals that were not under official investigation or wanted, but that the agency just had an interest in.(390) We already know that some of these agencies are targeting & harassing citizens. Would it not be reasonable to conclude that they are misusing this resource as well?

The ACLU released the Surveillance-Industrial Complex report to educate the public about how information collected from them is being used. The report notes that there is no way to determine how many job applicants might have been denied work because their names appeared on the list. “It turns companies into sheriff’s deputies, responsible not just for feeding information to the government, but for actually enforcing the government’s wishes, for example by effectively blacklisting anyone who has been labeled as a suspect under the government’s less-than-rigorous procedures for identifying risks,” the report states.

In addition to slander & keeping you unemployed, they may also use companies or recruiters in harassment campaigns (Mobbing). This is particularly the case with recruiters. It appears that they are often used to try to further traumatize a person using Mobbing tactics during interviews. For instance, they may ask you a series of questions for which you have to answer no to, such as asking you for credentials that you did not list on your resume.

They may ask you if you possess skill-sets which were not listed on the AD they had placed. This is designed to further humiliate you. These things happen to everyone once in a while. But with Mobbing, these things are done repeatedly by multiple people, time after time. There is basically a safe zone that these people can harass you from with little fear of being caught.

One common ploy used by recruiters is that they ll tell you that they don t have your resume in front of them. This tactic may widen the harassment scope by allowing them to ask potentially painful questions that are already answered on your resume. These questions are asked with ACCUSING, or MOCKING tones. They are designed to try to stir up negative emotions associated with a previously painful work environment. They may ask these questions repeatedly using a slightly different syntax such as, What was your last job?” Are you still there?” [When they know you’re not]

“How was the environment?” [If you were Mobbed] “So, you ve been unemployed since?” “So…you ve done nothing at all since?” “Why aren t you working?” [Accusing tone] “Haven t you been looking for work? Recruiters are paid by corporations to provide a service, (people). When you think about it, recruiters are actually employees of corporations, only they work in remote offices. Just as an in-house employee will participate in Mobbing out of fear of termination, or retaliation, these virtual employees are easily co-opted.

Mobbing-Emotional Abuse in the American Workplace, Davenport, Schwartz, Elliot

Mobbing sometimes continues after individuals have left the organization. Although this can rarely be proven, slandering continues… This ongoing mobbing, even after the individuals are no longer connected with the organization, seems to justify the Mobbers previous behavior & upholds the organization s decision. They try to defend themselves by continuing to destroy the victim s reputation… Dianna: the next minute I thought, Howe can all these people just go along with this? Yet I would think, I can t blame these people. I know they have to go along with this for their own survival
