"You've Got Mail" - and Other Electronic Data

February 2007
Employment Law Notes
For many of us, it is hard to remember a time when our waking hours did not consist of surfing the Internet, sifting through an endless sea of emails, hearing the all-to-familiar hum of cell phones and PDA’s, and being able to remotely access our office desktops via laptops and other electronic devices. The landscape in which we conduct business is continually changing. Many organizations today transact the majority of their business via some form of electronic medium. One study several years ago found that over 130 million workers are flooding recipients with 2.8 billion email messages each day! Since the study was conducted, that number may have doubled.
