Abstract

E-mail and related technology have created multi-faceted issues for public employers and legal practitioners. The article examines the issue of e-mail communications from the perspective of public records and public meeting requirements of several midwestern states including the impact of e-mail on public employee "privacy" in light of several recent cases concerning the monitoring of employee e-mail. Public employer liability for misconduct in cyberspace is likewise explored. Public employees' rights under the First and Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution are examined as well. Finally, the article discusses the preservation of privileges and discovery/litigation issues concerning e-mail.
