KEYWORDS: Employment contract, termination, dismissal, employee, serious misconduct, secrecy of correspondence, private life, articles 9 of the Civil Code and 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights

The employee has the right, even at the time and at the place of work, to respect for the privacy of his private life. This implies in particular the secrecy of correspondence. The employer cannot therefore, without violation of this fundamental freedom, take cognizance of the personal messages sent by the employee and received by him thanks to a computer tool made available to him for his work and this even in the event that the employer has prohibited a unprofessional use of the computer.
