internet abuse now greatest job threat
Although downloading pr0n at work has long been a big no-no, until recently people were more likely to face disciplinary action for lying to the boss or stealing. But according to a new study, abuse of Internet privileges--including violations of email policy and using company machines to shop on Amazon and Ebay --has surpassed lying, stealing and violence as the number-one cause of disciplinary action. The story concludes that the increase in disciplinary action is the result of increased scrutiny and enforcement of policies, not a surge in the amount of people downloading pr0n on company time. 20% of firms said they monitor Internet and email use on a daily basis.
