  • Employers read private text/emails

    Can an employer monitor and read personal emails and texts of an employee thus resulting in the employee being fired? Keep in mind that the cell phone and the laptop where such transmissions occurred, were the property of the employer and were given to the employee for business related use. Futhermore, the employee was fired because his emails and texts were deemed "crude and offensive" by the company thus resulting in termination; however, these were texts and emails sent to private recipients and not to other employees. Is this legal? I am trying to find some type of preceding cases and/or laws specific to this subject. Thanks

    If the cellphone and laptop are property of the company they can absolutely scan anything sent through them.
    They own them, and are to be used for business purposes only. You have no case..sorry
