WARNING: Your Boss Can Now Read EVERY Facebook And Whatsapp Message You Send At work

14 Jan

EMPLOYERS can now snoop through every private
message you send via webmail accounts and chat
software, including Facebook Messenger and
WhatsApp, EU judges have today ruled.
Employers can read private messages sent over the
internet by workers during office hours
If you send messages to your friends and family via
WhatsApp, Facebook, or any other online chat
client – you should probably make sure its safe for
work.
The European Court of Human Rights, ECHR, has
ruled that employers are allowed to read private
messages sent via chat software and webmail
accounts during working hours.
The move comes after judges sitting in the ECHR in
Strasbourg ruled a company was well within its
rights when it read an employee’s Yahoo
Messenger chats.
Bogdan Barbulescu – a Romania worker – was
sacked in 2007 after his employer discovered he
was accessing private messages during work hours.
