Managing the employees in your workplace effectively necessitates that even the smallest of businesses set up work rules. Work rules protect your business and your workers and if correctly implemented and executed, create and maintain a better work environment for all.

Having formal work rules in your business, even if they’re not required, is a good idea because they can help you protect your business from litigation and maintain high quality of work life for your employees. You need to make sure that your employees understand what is expected of them, not only in the work that they do, but in their behavior and in other areas of your employment relationship.

I left a lengthy comment on the article page, but the gist of it is that I'm fine with employees using company email for personal communications so long as said communications do not reflect negatively upon the company. In each email, our web domain follows the @ in the address. In each email signature, we link to: our e-commerce website, two company blogs, our Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest and Google+ accounts, as well as a couple of other websites of companies I own but are not my primary source of revenue and do not require an office full of employees.

That's a lot of potential exposure being left on the table if in fact the communications themselves are innocuous.
