Em­ployee chal­lenges fir­ing over chat his­tory

China Daily (Canada) - - CHINA -

A fe­male em­ployee in a real es­tate firm was fired after her chat his­tory on a pub­lic com­puter was seen and pho­tographed by her man­ager, and the pic­ture was sent to the head of­fice, Shang­hai Morn­ing Post re­ported on Wed­nes­day. The woman be­lieved that some in­sult­ing words about her man­ager in her chat his­tory led to the dis­missal. Her man­ager ar­gued that the true rea­sons were her lack of re­spon­si­bil­ity and her dif­fi­cult per­son­al­ity. The man­ager re­ceived a fine of 20 yuan ($3) for violating the em­ployee’s pri­vacy. A lawyer said the woman’s be­hav­ior was not se­ri­ous enough for dis­missal.
