Blogs At Work
by Michael Fox
Noted first at InstaPundit because he is quoted, is an interesting article on how blogs are being treated by employers. Given the topic of this blog, hard to pass up the reference. Anne Freedman's story relates tales of several employees, who are now 'ex-employees' because of their blogging endeavors. As pointed out by one or more of the commentators, almost certainly not illegal for a non-governmental employer. (Governmental employers have constitutional issues to consider.) However, something all employment lawyers who represent management learn, or should learn, at some point in their career, is that just because something is legal, doesn't necessarily mean it is the wise thing to do.
