With advancing technology and the pervasiveness of the Net in organizational computing, employers have several choices in monitoring and managing employee use and/or abuse of corporate digital resources - from ignoring the problem altogether to recording every keystroke and mouse-click. Legal issues, ethical perspectives, and productivity measures are used here to examine particular situations in helping managers make decisions. Above all, firms should not use available tools as a means for a witch hunt, but to provide supporting evidence when employee performance is less than satisfactory. Acceptable Use Policies can help a firm be proactive in communicating to employees its position on personal Internet usage.
