A system administrator who in his work bitcoins has gemined, if not summarily dismissed.
A lighter sanction or put an end to the employment contract in a different way was sufficient, it appears from a judgment of the subdistrict court in Amersfoort that Wednesday is published.
When the mining is the processing power of computers used for cryptographic puzzles to solve. If this is successful, then there will be a number of bitcoins free.
The employee in question had, on his job, a computer installed to the virtual currency to mine. According to his employer he has, thus, the rules on additional earnings outside of the company breached. Just as rules about the use of internet at work.
Instant dismissal would be in accordance with the court “because of the profound financial consequences,” the extreme means.
“The nature and seriousness of the conduct is not such that, given the way in which the employee’s employment years has satisfactorily fulfilled, the sanction of instant dismissal was justified.”
The court emphasizes that the employee is culpable has acted, but that it is not to serious culpability in the light. The man gets therefore a transitievergoeding.
