Acoustic shock is wreaking havoc among call centre workers, and employers who have nickeled-and-dimed their way through the call centre investments risk having to pay for they cheapness.
In the UK alone, companies have paid over £10m ($17.7m) in out of court settlements. A single claim can run up to £20,000 ($34,500). Surely in the US lawyers will find a reason to add a few zeros to their claims.
Acoustic shock is a common phenomenon in telephone and VoIP lines. Purchase a decent headset and you're fine. But if you try to cut corners and buy some cheapo consumer device, and you risk temporary if not permanent hearing loss.
Lawyers, start your lawsuits!
