Auckland law firm shares | Your emails and the law

An extract fro the Stuff today and worthy of sharing on our Auckland law firm blog. Have you ever considered the content of the emails you send from the office?

Work emails are the property of the employer. Courts have held that employees don’t have a legitimate expectation of privacy in the contents of their work emails, including personal messages sent from a work address.

Employers do not have the same rights in regard to communications sent from personal email or social media accounts. However, there are circumstances where it might be in an employee’s interests to make such communications available.
