Back in January, an Australia manager was fired from his job, after his employer discovered he had been watching "hardcore" pornography and storing his personal sex tape on his work-issued computer!

Whoops!

Well, the Sydney man wasn't going to let his bosses get off that easily! He actually sued his former place of employment, Port Macquarie's Smarter Insurance Brokers, for $10,000… and WON!

If you are wondering how this guy was able to successfully pull out a victory, his argument is kind of genius!

Apparently, he never denied downloading explicit content on his work computer, but clarified that he did so during his lunch break, explaining there was no rule in place against that!

Commissioner Ian Cambridge initially believed that the manager porn use could certainly be considered workplace conduct, explaining:

"Unless the employee worked in the sex industry, it would be difficult to contemplate that the viewing, downloading and/or storage of pornographic material represented proper, work-related use of the employer's equipment."

But he ultimately felt the porn watcher had a HUGE… point — the employer could provide no evidence they'd ever told the employee he had to confine his work equipment to work-related activities.

So since he used the work computer on his personal time he had actually done nothing against policy!

Even though it seems common sense, it was the burden of the employer to make its rules clear. Cambridge ruled:

"In the particular circumstances of this case, the subsequently discovered misconduct involving the accessing, downloading and storage of pornographic material could not be properly held to represent valid reason for the dismissal of the applicant."

The employer was ordered to pay the hard worker eight weeks' worth of wages.

Take notes, Perezcious readers! LOLz!
