Side Business on Company Business Time – Case 2

Another IT professional was also a poor performer. His coworkers just thought he was slow, but the manager would walk past his office and overhear phone calls regarding volleyball. Several times the manager walked into his office partition and he would quickly close the windows on his computer screen; however, he could not close them fast enough in all instances. One time he was caught red-handed maintaining a website for a girls’ volleyball league.

It turns out he was managing the league and was the administrator for the league website. Few long-term managers are surprised anymore after witnessing similar acts during work-hours and with the abuse of company resources. This person was also eventually terminated for poor performance. 


Even when the employer prevails on summary judgment, the employer must still bear the cost of attorney fees that normally exceed $50,000.
