People are Stupid, Ctd

In my continuing series highlighting the general stupidity of people we find this guy, who thinks that watching porn at work is ok…pity his boss and the Employment Relations Authority didn’t seem to think so:

A Mount Maunganui man who claimed watching pornography at work was not a serious misconduct has lost an appeal against his dismissal.

Reginald Hiha claims his former employer Crane Distribution Limited dismissed him unjustifiably from his position as storeman at Mico Bathrooms in Mount Maunganui in August last year.

He sought compensation and reimbursement for lost wages from the Employment Relations Authority.

ERA found the dismissal was justified and his employer had complied with its responsibilities in firing the storeman.

Reginald Hiha accessed used the internet at work to look at pornography sites despite being aware Crane Distribution regarded watching pornography on work computers during office hours as a serious misconduct.

Reginald was employed as the storeman at the Mount Maunganui Mico Bathrooms store where his job involved dealing with inward goods.

As part of his job he used the work computer system to enter details regarding inwards goods, stock control, deliveries.

He also had access to the internet through Crane’s computer system.

The ERA ruling states that in May 2011 Reginald began watching pornography on the work computer and continued doing this on a regular basis for the next three months.
