A SOCIAL worker has been given an 18-month admonishment after putting a colleague’s personal details on a website.

The woman, who has not been identified for legal reasons, admitted misconduct after using information gathered from work to put a colleague’s personal details on the “Hot Deals UK” website between April and November, 2008.

As a result, her female colleague received unwanted emails, services and goods including cat food, condoms, medical supplies and brochures.

The matter was brought before the Conduct Committee of the General Social Care Council in London.

The committee heard how the social worker had been warned by police about the matter under the Protection from Harassment Act on November 30, 2008.

But the committee recognised the woman had fully accepted responsibility at an early stage and admitted misconduct.

It decided the matter was not serious enough to sanction or suspend the woman.

A report on the committee’s decision states: “Although the committee did not hear from her directly, it accepted the submission by her representative that she understands the effect it had had on her colleagues.”

Yep, doesn't say that hukd sent the stuff.

The result was that people then signed her up to stuff, they've just missed out the detail in the middle.

Yeah but i dont think they've reported it correctly.

I bet the woman just used the freebies section and signed the other person up for loads of stuff.

I doubt she would have made a thread in freebies asking people to sign person X up and if it was in misc at least one person here would remember it.

but yeah, really stupid of the woman. deserves what she gets.

No, but putting two and two together I can see what they mean from the story.

Of course, as above, she might have even not posted the details, just ordered them. In which case hotukdeals has as much to do with it as google!
