    Default Sacked over porn

    Three UK judges have been sacked and a fourth has resigned after being caught watching porn on, offical IT equipment,
    there was no allegation that it was anything other than regular porn. What are ure views on this? They were doing nothing illegal other than using work equipment, but i daresay if they were online shopping or booking a holiday
    they wouldnt have been fired for it. Is it a bit hypocritical to take the action they did
    Blatant promotion should be outlawed
    but
    Vincent Browne is a Hero

    i can understand why they were sacked but i think it was a bit harsh. a warning would have being enough. the uk is very totalitarian now. if you spat your chewing gum on the curb youd probably be in jail for five years.

    personally id never watch porn at work, but i still think it is harsh on them.

    It all depends on what their terms and conditions were as to the use of the offical IT equipment. It might not have been the porn being accessed but the fact that the equipment was being used for uses outside their terms and conditions.

    It would be difficult to sack someone here for a first offense of watching porn.
    Or indeed after several times.

    Well if that was the case why mention the porn? Im fairly sure as ive already said if it was used to book a holiday etc at the most it would be a reprimand and most likely no action atall

    It's the way of the world.

    You have to cover your arse.

    Or leave yourself open to consequences.

    I'm self employed so someday I'll have to face up to sacking myself for watching porn on the job.

    They were sacked because they used their official IT accounts to access porn, if they had logged onto their personal accounts, even if they were using official IT equipment to access porn, then I suspect that the outcome would not have been so harsh.

    Probably because of media sensationalism! As soon as people see the words "Judges" and "Porn" in the same sentence they leap to read it. "Booking a holiday" just does not have the same sensationalism factor unfortunately.
