My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: n/a
I am from outside the US but I am sure my question will be interesting.
Occasionally I access a non-work forum from work. I have recently been told that there is an issue with this (specifically that I may have made comments on that forum while at work). I do not remember doing so but I *can* say that I have never revealed where I work on that forum.
Now comes the interesting bit. I have very strong suspicions that the data (forum access records) that my employer is using against me was obtained **illegally** via a third-party hacker (and the info found its way from him to my employer). The blog I go to HAS been hacked (and data stolen from the computer) - that is a *fact*.
So - in spite of me possibly doing something stupid (commenting on the forum from work) - *do I have a defensible case if the forum access records were obtained illegally?*
Keen to hear your views - bye for now -
