The New Rules of Email:
How to Prevent Liability and Manage Records

Email Risks

Email is more legally dangerous than ever. In recent years, email mistakes have triggered million-dollar jury awards and media feeding frenzies. The maze of employer rules and responsibilities relating to email content, monitoring, record retention, policies and best practices is staggering.

  • When is it illegal to monitor employees' email?
  • Do you have to pay employees for time spent writing job-related emails at home?
  • When (if ever) can you legally delete employees' archived emails?

Don't leave your email management to chance.

Join us on Tuesday, October 8, for The New Rules of Email: How to Prevent Liability and Manage Records, as nationally recognized email expert Nancy Flynn, founder of The ePolicy Institute, will walk you through the best-practices strategies to manage email rules, records and regulations.
