[LINK] CGU email spying claim
Sun, 30 Sep 2001 10:48:23 +1000 (EST)
A major Australian insurance company used ?illegal? and
?inappropriate? tactics to monitor employee email use and punish
staff, the Australian Privacy Foundation has said.
Sources told ZDNet Australia that senior managers at
Melbourne-headquartered insurance company CGU surveyed
employee emails then contacted by telephone people whose names
appeared in their personal messages.
Managers then removed email access from employees whose
messages contained names they considered unrelated to corporate
purposes, the sources said.
