Italian Court Says It’s OK to Look At Porn At Work On Your Lunch Break

It’s happened to all of us at one point in our careers. You’re goofing around on the Internet and you click a wrong link and suddenly, your screen is filled with naked, nubile bodies grinding each other as they make faces that look like they are giving birth to a pine cone. Or at least that’s what you tell the people in HR who caught you looking at it. If you’re one of these people who can’t resist the thrill of looking at explicit material on a work computer, you can either get a work at home job or move to Italy where apparently it’s perfectly legal. 

A judge in an Italian court ruled in favor of an employee who got caught look at porn during his lunch break. Back in 2010, the car maker Fiat fired the employee for looking at dirty sex stuff during his break. The employee, identified in court records only as “Giuseppe Z” (which would actually make a pretty sweet porn or DJ name) sued the company demanding the court award him his back pay, social security contributions and bonuses. An appeals court awarded Guiseppe all of his demands in 2011 and the nation’s highest court backed up the ruling. Then we presume they had sex with each other in the courtroom while loud, base driven music played in the background. 

The court stated that the employee only caught a glimpse of an X-rated DVD on his break and that such behavior didn’t happen during or disrupt company time. If this happened at the Volkswagen plant, then things would make a lot more sense.
