One member of staff sacked and four others disciplined due to internet misuse at Cheshire West and Chester Council.
The figures – obtained following a Freedom of Information request by the Chronicle – relate to incidents of internet misuse between April 2009 when the authority came into existence and August this year.
A staff member was sacked for ‘bringing the employer into disrepute’ after making a comment on a social media website.
The Chronicle also asked for the 100 most visited websites by council staff during the month of August.
Google proved most popular with 28,487 hits followed by Facebook with 24,769. Other frequently visited websites included the council’s own site (5,450)
My comment: Wow! Facebook visited nearly 5 times more than their own website.
