first_img BRITISH bosses are banning Blackberries and other smart-phones over fears they cost more in lost productivity than they gain, according to employment law experts.Employers initially rushed to buy smartphones for staff as they allow users to send and receive emails when away from the office – keeping them in contact at all hours. But bosses are now beginning to turn their backs on the devices, including Apple’s iPhone, for fear that the amount of time staff waste on them when they should be working far outweighs the benefits of 24 hour access to e-mails.Peter Mooney, of Employment Law Advisory Services, said the curse of the “Crackberry” – so named for its addictive quality – started a run earlier this year on employers looking to downgrade their staff’s company mobiles. Many worried the change might constitute a change in their remuneration package.He said: “What started as a trickle is certainly building up to a stream as more and more employers start looking at what they really need from their employers.”The distraction of social networking sites and internet shopping were among the drawbacks, he said. whatsapp More From Our Partners Police Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.com whatsapp Sunday 17 October 2010 10:43 pm Warning over Blackberry timewasting Sharecenter_img KCS-content by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan Times Tags: NULL Show Comments ▼last_img
