AUP and employee personal use
Hi, we are updating our AUP, and we are interested in anyone who may have language in their AUP which they think effectively addresses the employee personal use issues without completely prohibiting it. We currently are working with this draft wording suggested by a lawyer:
“ Accessing the Internet for personal use is prohibited for employees, except that employees may use the College’s computer system on their lunch, break, and off-duty periods for occasional and incidental personal use which is not otherwise prohibited by this policy. Such personal use must be appropriate; it must not violate the law, interfere with the employee’s work responsibilities, or conflict with the College’s mission. Additionally, employees may not use the College’s computer system for personal gain, for the benefit of a third party, or for activities that are inconsistent with the College’s tax-exempt status (such as political campaigning). Supervisors are authorized to require employees to cease or limit any personal use that interferes with job performance or violates College policy. Personal use of the computer system is a privilege that may be monitored, restricted or revoked at any time.”
There is some concern that the wording is not specific enough with regard to time.
Any links or comments would be appreciated.
Many thanks, - John
