FNBFin24 reports that FNB on Tuesday denied all allegations that it had intercepted the WhatsApp and email messages of former employees.  

This followed a report that four former FNB employees claimed their WhatsApp and email conversations had been monitored for several months before their dismissals.  “The bank did not intercept any private communication,” FNB human resources spokesperson Shamala Moodley said.  FNB confirmed that the individuals referred to were no longer in the bank's employ, following a thorough and rigorous internal disciplinary and CCMA process which was concluded nearly a year ago.  It also said the bank’s policies were applied in accordance with labour laws.  It was reported that the four former employees were dismissed after they had commented on Democratic Alliance leader Mmusi Maimane’s marriage to a white woman, as well as an apparent lack of transformation and pay disparities at FNB.
