California Court Rules Work E-mails are Not Private

Let's say you're seriously thinking about suing your employer for one reason or another, and you've even consulted an attorney about it. Whatever you do, DO NOT correspond to that attorney via your work e-mail account.

A California court just ruled that anything you send to your attorney from work will not be protected under attorney-client privilege.

That just applies to California residents for now, since it was a decision made by the Sacramento Third Appellate District court, but other states are sure to follow suit, and you don't want yours to be the case that sets the precedent.
