Misfired Messages Roil Businesses

“Today’s on-the-go workers are sending e-mails and instant messages containing derogatory comments and jokes, risqué images or sensitive information in droves — to the wrong people…. One woman bad-mouthed a recent job candidate as a ‘suck up’ in an e-mail she then accidentally sent to that prospective employee. He was hired to be her boss. Another person jokingly signed an important document with her manager’s name and the tag ‘who sits on her ass and does nothing all day.’ When she mistakenly forwarded the note to her boss, she was fired.” Christopher NullMisfired Messages Roil BusinessesWired)
