The union added that managers felt too embarrassed to tell him immediately what the complaints were about and instead referred to & # 39; unusual noises & # 39 ;.

The employee testified that he was masturbating at work in a bathroom stall, but only if there was no one next to him and he made no noises and kept his phone quiet while watching porn.

However, arbitrator Gus Richardson rejected the man's testimony that he was not making any sounds while he was busy with the activity and cited his colleague's complaints as evidence that the man could be heard.

Those complaints occurred after two technicians approached management to complain about noises in the bathroom, along with heavy breathing, & # 39; erratic movements and moans & # 39 ;. The management then met with the employee and did not address the issue directly, but said they were concerned about the welfare of the employee.

Richardson decided that the meeting with management, as well as a follow-up with the union, was a sufficient warning.

Richardson was asked to decide whether the loud masturbation in a bathroom stall was a justification for discipline and termination and whether it was a sufficiently private place.

Richardson said he accepted that there was nothing illegal about masturbation. He said, however, that the employee & # 39; had violated the privacy and sense of personal decorum of his colleague & # 39; s and ignored the warnings to stop & # 39;

It turned out that the employee had been warned about his behavior two years earlier.

More recently, a human resources employee had complained that masturbation & # 39; more often and bolder & # 39; had become. This in turn led to the company conducting an investigation and eventually firing the employee.

Richardson was also asked to consider evidence that the employee had a disability in the form of a sex addiction and should therefore receive a lower sentence.

& # 39; Even if there was a condition that would have a & # 39; sex addiction could be mentioned – and I was not convinced of the evidence that there was – and even if that was the grievance – and again I was not convinced that this was the case – there was nothing to establish that it was invalid in any way, & Richardson said.

The case seems to be the first of its kind. & (39) Neither (the company) nor the union representative could have found any case related to workplace masturbation, & quot; the ruling states.
