How should companies manage reasonable use of private email and Internet searches by employees at work? When might these policies breach an employment contract? Can an employer read staff emails and what is the law on email surveillance?

This new report from IT/ecommerce legal expert Susan Singleton focuses on the employment issue of email and Internet use in the office - arguably the most important and universally applicable part of Internet law.

Know the law and save legal costs. Checklists and real-life examples illustrate how to comply with the Human Rights Act (1998), the Data Protection Act (1998) and the new code of practice for employers, as well as the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 and the business practice regulations made under it.
