Emails at Work

Employers are liable for the actions of employees. There are three main risks with email:
• sending emails containing blue humour (harassment).
• making a legal contract by email.
• defamation.
In a perfect world you would have a lawyer draw up your email policy. But skilful legal drafting is not as important as judgement on the content.
