Do as I say, not as I do

The number of workers getting fired for violating e-mail policies is rising as companies face more subpoenas of e-mail records, according to a new poll.

Twenty-five percent of companies terminated a worker for violating e-mail policies, up from 22 percent last year, according to the poll.

Employees who get fired often are sending messages that violate a company's e-mail policy regarding content, such as messages with inappropriate language or photos. Another common mistake: using the company e-mail system for personal messages.
