Re: O/T What would you do...
As a past IT Director, you have too ask why the [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img] is it an issue anyway? If he wants to send out his resume in email, do it from home, fax ? go to Kinkos. Unless your company is in the business of placement, or he is going to be laid-off, he has no business with personal business at your business. We are not talking about keeping a tab on his stocks, setting a doctor's appointment or looking at his home camera from work.
My usual response to such requests were: As soon as it resides, or is transferred by any corporate asset or telecommunications, it instantly becomes a corporate information asset, subject to review by the appropriate supervisor(s) and/or officers of the company.....
I had many issues with these kind of situations, enough that I had to include a statement of privacy and confidentiality for all new employees, kind of sucks though.
BTW: I found Sales and especially upper levels, to be the sneakiest people in the office. Usually when they go, they like to take company information and customer lists with them. To which, it could be an information security issue if he leaves suddenly with confidential data, and worse that you knew about it. It was policy to escort all sales personnel out the door immediately.
I know it sounds draconian, but it IS a liability. [img]images/graemlins/crybaby.gif[/img]
