Ever-increasing connectivity has blurred the distinction between personal time and

company time. Electronic communication has become routine at work and at home.

donning and doffing work-wear or commuting home from a conference. Still, such

cases may guide companies through the dangers lying ahead. As more employees feel

their work seeping through their mobile devices, employers should anticipate more

problems-and communicate policies accordingly.
