Fired for extensive visits to online dating sites
Accessing dating and online chat services at work too much? Better watch out!!! Don’t let the above happen to you ;-)
Brian Crisp, cargo training co-ordinator for Air New Zealand for more than 25 years, was fired in 2005 after being caught spending up to a third of his working hours accessing internet sites with extensive visits to dating sites. He acknowledged there had been some inappropriate usage, but said much of the browsing occurred during his lunch hours, and pointed out he was not the only person with access to his login and password.

Employment Relations Authority after carrying out investigations found Air NZ's internet usage policy was not specific enough in relation internet access. There were weaknesses in the analysis of Mr Crisp's internet access which made it impossible to be exact about the extent of Mr Crisp's access during working hours.
Prepared for the verdict? After having analyzed the determinations, the authority said Mr Crisp's summary dismissal was not the action a "fair and reasonable" employer would have taken, and was therefore unjustified. The Authority hence ordered Air NZ to pay him $2000 as compensation for injury to his feelings.
For being unjustifiably dismissed, he got $2000 as compensation after having worked for 25 F***ng years. … I know you're at it now… I can see you!!! :roll: Advice from Ria… do it in your own time if your company has such stringent policies. Now get back to work. You know its you I am talking to!!!
