FIAT

ITALY’s Supreme Court ruled, rejecting an appeal from car giant Fiat against a worker’s reinstatement. Employees cannot be sacked for watching porn on the job provided they do so during their lunch break.

Fiat had fired the man from its Termini Imerese plant near Palermo in Sicily after a computer and three porn DVDs were found in his locker. The worker had argued that his porn viewing was limited to merely “catching a glimpse” of a film during his lunch break.

The court threw out claims by Fiat that the man’s alleged porn habit had “breached his relationship of trust with his employer” and was “incompatible” with his job.

The Court Cassation said in its ruling on Wednesday, “The evidence was insufficient to prove that the employee viewed porn during his working hours.”
