A wank at work is ‘ hu­man right’

Sunday Sport - - NEWS -

WATCH­ING porn at work and mas­tur­bat­ing at your desk could be your HU­MAN RIGHT, if you can prove you’re a SEX AD­DICT!

Lawyers have warned that hu­man rights and dis­abil­ity dis­crim­i­na­tion leg­is­la­tion could force em­ploy­ers to al­low sex- ad­dicted work­ers to blow off steam – and more – in the work­place.

Muneeza Sheikh, part­ner at Can­dian law firm Le­vitt LLP ex­plained: “This is an area of the law which is evolv­ing. An em­ployer has an obli­ga­tion to ac­com­mo­date work­ers up to the point of un­due hard­ship.

“In the case of sex ad­dic­tion, where an em­ployee claims the na­ture of this ad­dic­tion re­quires them to view pornog­ra­phy at work, from an em­ployer’s per­cep­tive they could ar­gue this is past the point of un­due hard­ship.”
