New laws will force millions of working Australians to reveal their personal internet and email history, in a move that’s been labelled ‘ludicrous’.

The expansion of “draconian” security measures proposed in a new bill will allow employers to snoop on the personal internet and email activity of more than two million Australians, a union has warned.

The increased powers have been described as “beyond ludicrous” by the Electrical Trades Union, which will allow employers to slap invasive measures on everyday workers traditionally imposed on high-security sectors at risk of espionage.
