How can you construct a solid policy? Here are some key tips: 1. Get HR involved. IT should list the technologies to be mentioned in the policy, and HR should ensure the rules are explained in layman\u2019s terms, says Jennifer Berman, a managing director with CBIZ Human Capital Services, a business services firm. 2. Be clear and specific. \u201cUse real examples of what\u2019s permissible,\u201d Berman says. Address online shopping, sports scores, streaming video. The more specific, the better, she says. The policy templates she provides to clients increasingly mention new technology such as video, social networking and IM. 3. Understand that video can fuel hostile workspace claims. There are \u201cinappropriate videos\u201d on sites such as YouTube, says Scott Fisher, an attorney at law firm Fowler White Boggs Banker, that could lead to discrimination, harassment and hostile workplace suits filed against companies that have allowed those videos to come into the enterprise. 4. Make avenues for complaints clear. Employees must understand how to report violations, Fisher says. And managers need training on how to deal with violators, says Berman. 5. Review policies at least yearly. \u201cThere\u2019s so much in this arena that takes place in a year. You want to make sure your policy covers a new situation or device,\u201d Fisher says.
