The risky business of sending e-mail

by on
in Firing,Human Resources

Mismanaged e-mail continues to cost U.S. employers, a recent survey shows. Of the companies surveyed:
  • 26% have terminated employees for e-mail misuse.

  • 24% have had employee e-mail subpoenaed.

  • 15% have gone to court to battle lawsuits triggered by employee e-mail.

  • 2% have fired someone for offensive blog content.
EPolicy Institute Executive Director Nancy Flynn expects to see the ranks of fired bloggers swell.

“Employee bloggers mistakenly believe the First Amendment gives them the right to say whatever they want on their personal blogs,” Flynn says. “Wrong! The First Amendment does not protect jobs.”

Best advice: If you must blog, write about something other than your company, your job or your coworkers.
