Australia Wants to Give Employers Power to Snoop on Worker Email
Australia wants to give employers the right to scan employee emails without employee consent. Apparently employers in Oz don't have that right now, unlike here in the United States. The reason: to prevent terrorism. Who knows what the individual Bruce and Sheila are writing about on company time? Whatever the content, it better not be cyber-terroristic. The Attorney-General, Robert McClelland, doesn't want to take any chances. No sacrifice of individual liberty is too great to protect individual liberty, he might have said, but didn't. Anyway, not everyone down there is thrilled with the idea.
Read about it in the Sydney Morning Herald.
