Duty to protect third-parties from online porn overrides employee's right to privacy in NJ

Michael Fitzgibbon at Thoughts from a Management Lawyer is blogging about a recent decision from New Jersey in which the court there held that employers have a duty to protect third parties from porn surfing employees. And "[n]o privacy interest of the employee stands in the way of this duty on the part of the employer." Interesting stuff. See: Thoughts from a Management Lawyer: Internet Surfing and the Workplace, who got it from Employee's Surfing Pornographic Web Sites At Work Land Employer In Hot Water WLF May it Please the Court Law Weblog.
