Porn abuse at work leads to the sack

A
third of British firms have sacked staff for abusing work e-mail accounts.

A
survey by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) found
that workers browse the internet for an average of more than an hour each day
and write 18 personal e-mails.

Under
the new Data Protection Code, employers are required to inform staff of the
nature and extent of all internet monitoring, as well as the extent to which
information about internet use is retained and for how long.

The
survey, The People and Technology Survey, found that sending porn was the top
reason for formal action.
