Pornography found on employees' computers

Two-thirds of human resources professionals said in a survey they've discovered pornography on employee computers. Nearly half of those, 43 per cent, said they had found such material more than once.

The poll points to a common employer dilemma: the need to balance employee privacy with electronic monitoring of computer content, according to Alexandra Gross, legal editor at Business & Legal Reports. Companies also must be clear that e-mail and Internet access are the employer's property.
