I am not fighting with anyone! Just letting you all know whats happening. Trust me I want to take the box out, but I can't.
Its all up up to the H.O., boss and inspector. I am not going to lose my job over this, and I ain't lookin for another.
I will keep ya'll updated. E.O.D.

Shoot first, apologize later.....maybe

Zapped. Don't put the TV in the shower area but suggest to the home owner another location than he can still view is TV but it's in a safe location. If you two can't agree on a new location remove the wiring and refuse to do the job.

I am not so sure that I understand the process here. Where is the electrical inspector, Zapped should be waiting for a violation, not a lawsuit.
What state is this in?
I can tell you that if I was the inspector, Zapped would be writing to tell you the inspector has solved the problem. This type of installation not only gets my attention, but the attention of the building department as I would write an electrical violation and a summons - which goes directly to the local judge.

Zapped I would have to aggree with CaptAl on this one. Your boss must not think highly of you. Maybe you should point out the violation in the code book to the HO and your last boss. Notice I said last because today is Monday and I would be looking for another boss would I could lean on when I was unsure of an installation. This guy is only in it for a quick buck.

How long have you worked for this man, and what does the others on the crew think about the installation?

I'm sure the person who wants this TV in the tub invisions him or herself sipping champain and showing off in whatever way and being the master of things mere mortals haven't the where-with-all to control.

I see you're telling the lawyer. I'd guess you have but I haven't seen that anyone has actually mentioned to the individual(s) that this is dangerous. It's a stretch, but maybe they don't know.

So zapped are yo intentionally being evasive? Did YOU, by you I mean YOU yourself inastall it. Or did the boss install it. If you don't want to answer that's fine.

Gent's... A little slack for the man?

"I said no, but......."

Sounds like he did more than he could with the situation, spare finding another job. It's his Boss's butt in liability, and license if something happens, as HE knows about it, and went agaist the keen observation of his man in the field, who warned him.

Remember, Ollie North followed orders too. Look at him now! [Linked Image]

Technically, It's the INSPECTORS BUTT! IMO

Zapped, CYA, and snap a picture of the inspector standing next to it at final.
