Significant changes to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure regarding document production recently to went into effect in December 2006. The new Rules are designed to tackle - but do not resolve - complex technological and logistical issues surrounding electronic discovery, production and preservation. Because electronic information is voluminous and highly perishable, the new Rules require parties to "meet and confer" to resolve issues
unique to electronic discovery early in litigation.

Choosing either to monitor or not to monitor employee e-mail can be risky business because, unfortunately, the reality is that an employer can be subject to liability in either scenario. There is a way, however, to turn a no-win situation into a win-win situation: we can help you, as an employer, minimize your risk of liability by helping you implement a tailored, written policy regarding employee e-mail monitoring that complies with federal and Nebraska law and that simultaneously helps to protect you against employee e-mail abuse or misuse.
