The internet makes it so easy to be nosey but it seems unethical to me to look up other people's personal information online, and especially coworkers while you are at work. What someone's house is worth, whether they have a criminal record, their divorce or other civil legal information should be private but, unfortunately, it's not. An employer could be subject to a lawsuit for not having policies in place to discourage this kind of snooping and for not enforcing them.

Iagree, what would be the value other than invading anothers privacy! That is just wrong in my opinion! As dor the Dr my daughter works for, he does and that is why her co worker got fired! Sad two days before christmas to get canned....
