Employees Can’t Be Fired for Surfing Porn on the Job

"Employees can’t be fired for surfing porn on the job. That’s the judgement of a court which has ruled that an employer who fired two employees caught surfing the web for porn on company time must not only reinstate them, but must pay each of them an award of $40,000 for unfair dismissal.

Ok, go that? The employees are viewing online pornography on the job, presumably to the exclusion of their other duties, and the employer can’t fire them. In fact if the employer does fire them, it would be unfair dismissal and grounds for legal action."

Ah! But can they be fired for pilfering tissues? Hmmm?
