check out www.vlweekly.blogspot.com… A post, and article I read today reminds us, that what we do at work, is not private.
Banks v. Mario Industries, employee spends his time at work, drafting a plan, and ideas for a new, competing business. As he has a noncompete, that prohibits this, he is in big trouble! A computer forensic expert wiped his old computer at work, and low and behold, his business plan appears – and a 1.6 million dollar judgment against him. Scary story, but one where common sense should play a role. If you don’t want your boss to see it, don’t do it at work, and don’t use your office computer!
