Where should an employer post notice of its email and internet policy?

Author: Jessica Sussman

An employer should include its email and internet policy in the employee handbook. All employees should be required to acknowledge the receipt of the policy in writing and agree to follow the policies set forth therein.

Further, if any changes are made to the policy, an emplyoer should recirculate the policy to all employees. Additionally, an employer should consider a computer log-on screen message that appears each time employees log on to the computer reminding the employee that email and internet use is subject to employer monitoring, and the employee should consent to such monitoring by clicking OK.
