Within limits, probably yes.

Sometimes it pays to take a break.  Taking a break involves doing 
something other than the job at hand and that can be anything, including 
using the internet recreationally.  An employer who banned recreational 
use _absolutely_ would be a fool.

There are no absolutes.
