Can my Employer Monitor my Internet Use?

Without question, the Internet has changed the way we do business. Walk into any modern office, and you will see scores of Internet-enabled devices, ranging from desktop computers to tablets to smartphones. These devices allow for unprecedented ease of communication and the ability to literally work from anywhere. It also allows employers to monitor the way the employees spend time and company resources more than ever. In some cases, this type of monitoring can lead to adverse employment actions and even termination - which in turn may lead to a discrimination claim.

I Feel Discriminated Against By My Employer Because Of My Religious Practice; What Should I Do?

The United States was founded in part on principles of religious liberty. Enshrined in our Constitution is the fact that the government is generally prohibited from preventing people from freely exercising their faith. In a logical extension of this principle, federal and state law also prohibit most employers from discriminating against people on the basis of religion. After all, what good would the right to practice a particular religion be if employment discrimination systematically marginalized people for exercising that right?
