What to do about co-worker “harassment”?

My co-worker was constantly lurking and snooping in my cubicle. He would pop in at any random times and read my computer screen and scan my desk. I notified my supervisor but my co-worker flatly denies it. I asked my co-worker not to enter my workspace without being invited. He still lurks around the entrance of my cubicle staring at my desk, computer, etc. Can I put up a small camera in my cubicle? Is there any law against it?

If you are being harassed at work by a co-worker you need to advise your supervisor and/or human resources department about the problem you are having at work to get it resolved. If not resolved in a short period of time, I suggest that you consult with a labor law attorney and/or a representative of your local department of labor for assistance.
