All of us use work computers for other than strictly business purposes. We know that the IT folks CAN read your e-mail, see what sites you go to, and even which programs you're currently running on your workstation.
These programs allow employers to see exactly what is on your screen at any moment by bringing up your workstation. My work decided to use a "BLOCK EVERYTHING" policy, where any personal e-mail (entry point for evil viruses), social networks, eBay, etc...are verboten. No minesweeper, or solitaire for you, changing your settings, wallpaper, nada! We even have a sticker in red lettering on our phones that read something to the effect of: "Use of this phone constitutes authorization to monitoring at all times."
Some say that employer's shouldn't be allowed to invade your work privacy. But, where there's a will there's a way...
What's your take on this?
