Never save your online passwords on a work computer as the office can access your work computer. So while surfing the net, use your browser’s privacy mode and avoid saving passwords of your personal accounts, Fox News reported.
You should also refrain from circulating inappropriate emails and instant messages as anything in writing, stays in the record and can be traced back to you. A bad joke can get magnified with every forward, and even “private” instant message chat logs tend to stick around. There’s no hiding from a rude remark when your email address or username is attached to it. Keep it to yourself!
Avoid taking selfies while at work and posting it online, as you might end up sharing more than you planned and in case of a mishap, you may be asked to pay a fine or be asked to serve jail time.
Also, your identity can be revealed even if you post “anonymous” reviews or comments, so keep away from doing that, especially from your work computer. In the current day and age, it has become easier than ever for an employer to track down gaps and inconsistencies in your work history or education, so never lie on your resume.
Also avoid taking a fake sick day, if you are caught the consequences can be terrible and cost you your job. Consider this real life example, a New Zealand man took some sick days to compete in a boat race. He lost his job after his boss saw the championship photos on Facebook. #fail!, reports Fox News.
