GOTTA WATCH THAT E-MAIL ON THE JOB
E-mails are a wonderful means of communication, but you've got to be extremely careful about how you use it at work. Forty-four Tampa city employees, including eight police department employees and a fire department captain, have had disciplinary memos placed in their personnel files after an audit showed that they had been sending personal e-mails in violation of city policy. The e-mails reportedly had nude of otherwise sexually explicit photos or images.
More and more companies are installing software which allows management to monitor e-mail usage in an attempt to insure that employees are only using it for job-related communication. While there are some people who have expressed concern about this "intrusion", just remember this: You're using their system, and you're on their time and payroll.
