New ruling allows bosses to read your work emails/pm's

Postby Prey » Thu Jan 14, 2016 12:09 pm

Employers can read workers' private messages sent via chat software and webmail accounts during working hours, judges have ruled.

The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) said a firm that read a worker's Yahoo Messenger chats sent while he was at work was within its rights.

Judges said he had breached the company's rules and that his employer had a right to check on his activities.


"This judgment underlines the importance of having appropriate and lawful employee-monitoring policies in place and making sure both that they are communicated to employees and that they are adhered to by the employer,"

My boss is an utter Edwin.

Unfortunately, I'm self-employed so it's not a situation likely to change soon.
My face is tired.

This doesn't seem unusual to me, depending on what the employee was asked to sign when he started.

If it was on a personal device, THEN I would be concerned.

Monitoring of work email and IM is not a new thing - common practice in many corporates.

I'm also failing to see an issue here if the dude is using company property to send said IMs and emails. Heck, if someone sent dodgy emails using a corporate address that could end up hurting the company's image so yeah, fail to see anything wrong with this. Send pictures of your cock to underage birds on your own time or something.
