New counter terrorist measures may allow employers to snoop on employee’s email.

The proposed changes to the Telecommunications Act were announced today by Deputy Prime Minister Julia Gillard. While civil libertarians are denouncing the move as an invasion of privacy, Ms Gillard says that this is not the case. Speaking with the Nine Network, Ms Gillard promised employees privacy would not be compromised.

“I promise we are not interested in the email you send out about who did what at the Christmas party. What this is about is looking at our critical infrastructure.

“Our technology is a big infrastructure issue these days,” Ms Gillard said. “If our banking system collapsed, if our electronic system collapsed, obviously that would have huge implications for society.
So we want to make sure they are safe from terrorist attack.”
