Description examines how public entities crack down on employees who misuse the Internet. The story reveals that the number of companies that monitor their employees Internet use and check up on employee e-mail messages has jumped in the last three years. Governments are modifying acceptable-use policies, and considering the increasing cost of monitoring. A major finding is that most offenders are solid workers, who, after being punished, "go on about their lives as even better employees than they were before."
