Private messages at work can be read by employers, says Euro court –
Employers can now 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 Messenger chats sent while he was at work was within its rights.
Commenting, UKIP Leader in Northern Ireland, David McNarry MLA said:
“I support UKIP MEP Diane James in her response over yet more abuses of rights through typical EU nonsense and interference. People in Northern Ireland should be alerted to what is being exposed here. As Diane points out, we need to get out of the European Union.”
UKIP Justice and Home Affairs spokeswoman, MEP Diane James said earlier today:
“What did you expect? As long as Britain is in the EU, we are Treaty bound to abide by rulings from the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg.”
“UKIP believes that British people should make their own laws and have them interpreted by the British Supreme Court.
Otherwise we will continue to be burdened with judgements like this made by judges that we did not appoint.”
