Keep Personal and Business E-Mails Separate


Peter Gillespie was quoted in SHRM on October 14, 2015. The article “Keep Personal and Business E-Mails Separate” discussed the importance of keeping personal and business e-mails separate.

Peter was quoted on attorney-client privilege with regards to emails.

“Employees may be viewed as having consented to allowing the employer to read and use their e-mails simply based on having elected to send or receive the communication from a work-provided e-mail account,” explained Peter. “In some states, attorneys for the employer may even be allowed to read and use e-mails that an employee sent to his or her own attorney, if the employee communicated with counsel over a work-provided e-mail account.”
