Be mindful of internet use at the office

By Daniel A. Lublin

Fresh after my recent article on Internet use at the office, Canada’s privacy czar has recently opined on privacy in today’s ever connected society. In a Toronto Star article, Privacy Czar Jennifer Stoddart, advises all Canadians to “think before they post“.

All employees should strongly adhere to Ms. Stoddart’s advice. With the growing popularity of website’s like Facebook and Myspace, the likelihood of an employee’s off-work actions effecting their employment are exponentially increased. Just ask Crystal Bell.
