Using employer’s computer to store sexually explicit results in recommendation the employee be terminated


Human Resources Admin. v. Vila, OATH Index No. 1578/08
OATH Administrative Law Judge Julio Rodriguez recommended termination for a paralegal aide who used the agency computer to store thousands of unauthorized images and video clips, many of which were sexually explicit, as well as other programs and files.
The evidence also showed that the individual was insubordinate and committed multiple time and leave violations.
