2006 Workplace E-Mail, Instant Messaging & Blog Survey

Press release: “E-mail mismanagement continues to take a hefty toll on U.S. employers, with costly lawsuits–and employee terminations–topping the list of electronic risks. As recent court cases demonstrate, e-mail can sink businesses–legally and financially. Last year, the inability to produce subpoenaed e-mail resulted in million dollar–even billion dollar–lawsuits against U.S. companies. In fact, 24% of organizations have had employee e-mail subpoenaed, and 15% of companies have gone to court to battle lawsuits triggered by employee e-mail. That’s according to the 2006 Workplace E-Mail, Instant Messaging & Blog Survey from American Management Association (AMA) and The ePolicy Institute.”
