A First Instance Court in Athens on Monday ruled in favour of an airline company that had fired an employee for "surfing" the social networking site Facebook and other websites while at work.

The court ruled that the company was justified to end the work contract with a female employee without severance pay on the justification that she was visiting internet websites, including the best-known social networking sites, for hours at a time and on a daily basis.
