Issue: Employers wiping out Net surfing on the job/Eric Benderoff, Chicago Tribune
DFO: We, at HBO, had quite a row about Web surfing during working hours when the Kootenai County commissioners banned this blog from the courthouse 10 days or so ago. That, of course (with apologies to Any Mouse), was censorship. If commissioners had banned all Internet surfing during breaks and lunch hours, they would have been on firmer ground. I don’t see anything wrong with net surfing, if it doesn’t take away from work. I routinely check ball scores while working here. It has no effect on my work production.
Question: Do you think employers should cut down on Internet surfing by worker bees?
