Robin quoted in AOL News on "Sexting"
12/16/2009
 
Robin is quoted in a December 14, 2009 AOL news article about the pending U.S. Supreme Court “Sexting” case. The case is expected to clarify the extent of the rights of employers to read text messages sent and received by their employees on employer-issued equipment.

Jeff Quon, a police sergeant in Ontario, Calif., is alleged to have used a work pager to send hundreds of personal, sometimes sexually explicit, text messages to his wife, his girlfriend and another officer.

Robin’s quotes are as follows:

Robin Bond, an attorney and the founder of Transition Strategies, a firm that represents employees on legal matters, agrees that to avoid confusion in the workplace, the court has an opportunity to show the way forward. "I think having one standard would be helpful," Bond said.

The Supreme Court is expected to rule on the Quon case by June. Until then, Bond says she'll continue to tell her clients to make sure to protect themselves.

"The right thing to do is to bring your own cell phone to work," Bond said. "That way, you do have a right to privacy, because it's your plan, your provider. Why would anyone want to use a company phone to send sexually explicit or private messages? To me, it says something about judgment."
