More than ever before, companies are obligated to provide expensive severance packages, excessive unemployment benefits and retirement benefits. Even in "employment at will" States, the IT manager may be exposed to significant expenses when terminating a computer professional.

This is a guide for the IT manager to justify firing "for cause", the IT professional. Just as managers are under a fiscal duty to their computer employees, the employee is bound by rules of ethics, disclosure and proper use of computing resources.

By identifying cases of fraud, unauthorized disclosure and resource abuse, you can confidently fire the IT employee "for cause" and save considerable financial assets.

Don't be the victim of abusive IT employees. Fight back!

* Understand your rights to read e-mail and use unobtrusive measure to monitor web browsing and keystrokes.

* See how to quickly spot resume fraud and puffery.

* Identify acts of moral turpitude and sexual harassment.
