Employment Lawyer Cautions Employees and Employers to Be Careful When Emailing

Last updated Friday, May 4, 2012 01:00 ET

Depending on the nature of the email mistake, an email could lead to a person's termination or wind up as an exhibit in an employment-related lawsuit.

Keith Clouse, a Dallas, Texas employment lawyer, represents employers and employees in various employment law disputes. He cautions employers and employees alike to be vigilant when using email. By way of example, he highlights a recent news story.

 

According to this news story, a large British company mistakenly sent emails to the entire staff of its investment unit. The email message was sent to some 1,300 employees and informed them that their employment had been terminated and that they should turn over company property as they left the building. The employer later stated that it intended to send the email to just one employee and that a clerical error resulted in the email being sent to so many others.

 

While that employer was able to retract its email message fairly quickly, not all email mistakes can be rectified so quickly—or at all. Depending on the nature of the email mistake, an email could lead to a person’s termination or wind up as an exhibit in an employment-related lawsuit.
