Electronic Discovery Law
Wipeout: The Dangers of Workplace Websurfing
From NPR's All Things Considered:
"Legal Liability: E-mails may travel from sender to receiver in a flash, but their digital trail lingers much longer -- and that has landed some firms in hot water. A 2006 survey of more than 400 companies found that 15 percent have fought a lawsuit triggered by a worker's careless correspondence. One in four firms has had a worker's e-mail subpoenaed, and about the same number say they've fired a worker for misusing electronic correspondence."
