The Details of the Question
Is it permissible in terms of rights between employees and employers to study, read books, obtain information from the Internet for personal development along with fulfilling our responsibility at work?
The Answer

Dear Brother / Sister,

If you use the internet after fulfilling your duties and if the employer allows you to use it, it is permissible and no violation of rights is in question. If you have not been told anything about it, you should inform the employer about it and pay for the internet you use if it is necessary.
