"Shopping" at work can get you in trouble

Cheese it--the cops!
Matthew Tarpey, CareerBuilder, says shopping from the desk is on the rise. Half of workers say they will do it. forty-two percent will spend more than an hour.

Forty-two will use their phones or tablets to pare down the Christmas list. Last year, that was 27%.

But here comes The Grinch. Twelve percent of employers say they would fire someone caught doing this. This is up from 8% last year.

Of course, the holidays are not the only time employers worry about wasted time on personal activities. But this, year surveillance is up,

--36% of employers say their company monitors sites employees visit (4% last yr)

--55% prohibit posting o behalf of the company on social media (that was 50% last yr)

--28% say they have fired someone for using the internet for personal reasons and 18% have fired an employee for something posted on social media

You know your workplace--are you vulnerable? Your boss may be making a list and checking it twice.
