    I think you may need to get a definitive answer by going to Fair Work Australia and confirm both employer and employee rights...

    Good point. Ring the department of fair trading tomorrow. 133220. I call them about every 3 month to ask questions about my staff.

    I know, DH can't believe how brazen she is, not only was he and 2 other workers upstairs she knows we have security monitors on the front desk plus DH sent a bulk email to all workers last month saying please don't use Facebook and look up personal stuff during work hours, she's such a nice girl and her family is lovely but ah no I don't want staff in my office doing that!
    Good idea I'll ring fair trading in morning

    I rang fair work this afternoon, they confirmed instant dismissal , escort her out etc, the thing is we put off saying anything until I spoke to them and DH rang me at 3pm today and she was downstairs on Skype again with the same guy, he got screen shots and I have to tell you even I was shocked at what they were saying/doing!
    DH and one of the female managers sat down with her tonight and told her that they saw her etc and she just burst into tears and begged him not to tell her mother, grabbed her bag and left
    I feel sorry for her being so young but obviously don't want her working for us, it just astounds me she was doing this at work !

    I think it's unprofessional to tell her mother about something that happened at work..
    How would you feel of you boss told your parents you didn't go to work one day? or didn't do any work?
    It's a job and no matter how old someone is the parents shouldn't be total unless it breaks the law, she is 17 so quite legal to have a sex life...
    However maintaining that at work should be an instant dismissal...

    If its in her contract that you monitor usage simply state it to her.

    Well, I guess that has saved you the trouble of having to deal with it any further. Hopefully she doesn't go and tell her mum a different story and you won't have to deal with an angry mum.

    I have worked in places where we were asked to sign an internet and email policy so we were in no doubt about what misuse of computers would lead to.

    Sorry I havent read all pp. I think you need to remind ALL staff of what appropriate use of work computers is, what is completely unacceptable and what the consequences are. Also, let them know you have become aware of downloading etc and that use will be monitored. Keep a record of EVERYTHING and def do screen dumps or evidence. She in a respectable job where she probably expects to be treated as an adult, deal with it the workplace an dot involve her parents. Good luck.

    Edit-haha probably should have read pp first.
