Facebooking during work is graft – MACC


MALACCA: Civil servants and staff of government-linked companies (GLCs) surfing social media or engaging in personal matters during working hours may be categorised as having committed corruption, said the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

This also applied to those who surfed Facebook or other forms of social media, as such actions could be considered as straying from their job specifications.

The act of engaging in other personal tasks during work hours could be considered as contravening the employment contract and culprits could face disciplinary action if initiated by respective disciplinary boards.

It was however noted that such offences were not covered under the MACC Act.
