blog off!

If you're a blogger, you might be putting your job on the line every time you go online. There have been a number of cases in recent months of employers over-reacting, and staff being disciplined for mentioning their work in their personal blogs, even where they thought they'd managed to keep it anonymous.

We've written a quick briefing for people who keep a blog, and don't want to lose their job over it. Check it out here.
