Modern businesses encourage the use of the internet and e-mail
as a research and communication tool. Abuse of either of these
leaves the employer open to potential liability. Staff should have
easy access to a clear internet/e-mail policy so there can be no
doubt about what is and what is not permissible.
Employers also need to be aware of social networking sites, not
only for the purposes of their own business but also the potential
for use, or abuse, of these by staff.
