With the recent press surrounding Hillary Clinton’s use of her personal email for official work communications, now is the perfect time for employers to ensure that the proper policies are in place to prevent employees from comingling their work and personal email accounts. Politics aside, there is a concern that Clinton’s emails may have compromised sensitive, secret information. Employers face a similar risk, since employees may have trade secrets or other confidential and proprietary information saved on their personal cell phones or laptops. Employers are urged to review policies to ensure that the proper safeguards are in place. Consider a prohibition on forwarding work emails to personal accounts, require that official communications be sent from the company email, and establish a strong confidentiality policy.
