Acceptable Use Policy


Recommended Posts

This is a warning for all of you who surf the Net for personal business while you're at work: Up to 80 percent of employers monitor their workers!

Different companies have different standards for Internet usage, with some going so far as to outlaw any personal use whatsoever on company time. Others don't mind as long as the work gets done.

New York's Department of Education is apparently one of the places that frowns on personal 'Net usage, and they recently fired Toquir Choudhri over his use of news and travel web sites while on the job. Choudhri, who worked in the Department of Education, appealed his firing to a judge, who has just handed down his ruling.

"It should be observed that the Internet has become the modern equivalent of a telephone or a daily newspaper, providing a combination of communication and information that most employees use as frequently in their personal lives as for their work," Administrative Law Judge John Spooner said in recommending only a reprimand for Choudhri.

{of course, if your prudent enough, you can find ways to delete personal usaged at work}

[don't ask me how ~ that could get me fired!]
