A Framework for Employee Email Privacy within the United States.

Employers and employees continue to be highly vulnerable to negative consequences that may result from e-mail privacy intrusions. Given their potentially differing perceptions, there is a need to understand the privacy issues associated with e-mail use. This article first reviews the U.S. legal system to reveal the lack of e-mail privacy protection. A framework is presented to identify the potential consequences under varying circumstances in the workplace, exemplified by classic e-mail privacy cases. The conclusion drawn is that employee e-mail within U.S. organizations is never private, contrary to employee behavior. This contrast indicates a need for change in e-mail user behavior and management policies. In response, suggestions for developing user practices and proper management of e-mail are provided.
