11 I'd go further than that, I would be more specific regarding the way in which
12 that user violated the policy: e.g. used company IT equipment to
13 access 'such & such' type of website in company time. In my company, 'social
14 networking websites' like myface, youtube and what not, are out of bounds.
15 Ditto for ebay - employees were spending far too much time browsing deals on
16 ebay.
18 Also, what are the implications of violating the policy - speak to your HR
19 department first and reiterate these in the same message; e.g. porn may be
20 instant dismissal, but ebay may just result in a disciplinary hearing. Then
21 check that (s)he (and others) don't just use anonymouse to get to their
22 preferred websites . . .
