Beijing Woman Fired by International Company for Storing Porn on Work Computer

Beijing Woman Fired by International Company for Storing Porn on Work Computer
Aug 31, 2015 By eChinacities.com

A woman employed by John Deere in China was fired for storing porn in her work laptop. A Chaoyang arbitration committee ruled that the company must pay her 290,000 Yuan in compensation. The company refused to accept this and took the case to court.

In the first hearing of the case, the company argued that storing porn on a work computer is against the rules as stated in John Deere's employee handbook and code of conduct. Therefore, the company was entitled to terminate the woman's labor contract. The judge ruled that the company had the right to terminate the contact without compensation.

The woman, Zheng appealed the decision, arguing that the company did not give her any warning, room for repentance, or any other opportunities. This, she said, was in violation of labor contract law.

John Deere said that employees cannot use their allotted computer memory for files other than work files. In the second hearing, the court upheld the original ruling, siding with the company.

The real question is, what kind of porn and why was it on her work computer? Was she running off to the bathroom for some stress relief in her breaks? Or maybe was she using it to learn how to please her 'man friend'? These reports never cut to the interesting parts of the story.

Even the way they drive says a lot about their criminal nature, habitually lurking for loopholes, opportunities to steal, bribe (guanxi), cheat, extort, making lame excuses.....devious, ruthless, cheap. Common criminal sense.

Hahaha... ridiculous. Chinese always have to learn the hard way and then act like somebody owes them something for teaching them the lesson their education should have already taught them... "COMMON SENSE".

Yeah, but at least in China where porn is illegal it makes a tiny bit more sense. It was a work computer so the company might also be held liable. In the West where the porn is legal, it's a lot harsher.

Had this woman not read her company hand-book and code of conduct? A 'no porn' rule is a basic one in every place I have worked. So did she think she was 'special'?
