Information technology is changing daily. Because of the unprecedented rate at which it is growing, few laws are in place governing individuals and businesses.Lawsuits are cropping up everywhere dealing with issues lawyers and judges have not seen.

If you are expected to respond to professional e-mails on the weekends using your home resources, should you be able to plan your Disney vacation via the Internet at work? If you are expected to work a twelve-hour day, when do you call your friends to make weekend plans? Where do employers' rights end and employees' rights start?
