The Importance Of Reinforcing Legalities Surrounding Job Software

Aug 18, 2007
As we enter a new age of communicating and working online, we're faced with new challenges that require more protections than what we've been presented with offline. Although some aspects of these online challenges are analogous to the offline environment, there are a significant number of issues that are specific to Internet networking - in particular, job software.

This is a truly interesting aspect of the working environment especially when we're faced with a set of legal procedures already put into place. Legal documents that typically accompany sub-contracted job offline are somewhat applicable to a job software system, however at the same time, they aren't completely appropriate. The nature of the Internet just doesn't allow us to apply the same procedures and conditions pertinent of the brick and mortar employment office to the dynamic character of an online job software system.

So instead of blindly following what has been set before us in the past, we must quickly adopt current (although changing) practices of ethics and we must adhere to and reinforce them in an effort to validate them. Only when we do so can we create an Internet-based atmosphere that is lucrative for all parties involved.

Having said that, we need to consider requirements. We need to consider what is required to create an atmosphere that reinforces the values we expect offline and online. As mentioned earlier, the offline contract model alone is not sufficient. It simply doesn't make appropriate adjustments for things like email, Internet connections, or viruses. Nor is Internet terminology addressed in offline agreements. Without taking these things into account, we can mistakenly assume that offline laws are adequate to protect our investments.

Because these considerations need to protect a job software system's clientele and the system administrator at the same time, they need to be carefully crafted in such a way that the system fosters confidence. That is - confidence that private information won't be divulged or accessed by strangers, confidence that clientele computers will be protected from viruses, and of course, confidence that disputes will be handled in a way that they are reinforced in any court of law.

As it currently stands, most job software systems have success with reinforcing legalities via terms of service agreements, privacy policies, and sensitive material policies. In these materials, emphasis is on protecting all parties from things like copyright violations, warranties, defamatory content, and viruses. While these protections are typical, they may not be enough to protect a job software system from unforeseen events.

In all the discussions of malicious Internet activity, purposely-malevolent acts must be addressed in any agreement, and they must be met with legal repercussions if a job software system is to recover and maintain a reputation of integrity. Because the clientele that accesses your job software system will expect legal reinforcements, conditions or terms need to be clearly defined and accessible not only by your users, but also by the legal representatives that will help you in times of crisis.

Therefore terms of service agreements, privacy policies, and sensitive material policies should be within reach from every part of a job software system, and they must be written in a manner that does not cause confusion or create loopholes. Users must also agree to the conditions inside these types of agreements before they are even allowed to access the system. Every once in a while, the way that an agreement statement is written or presented is intentionally misinterpreted for the benefit of a hacker or simply someone who does not wish to comply with "the rules."

To reinforce responsibility, the agreement terms of a job software system cannot be open to interpretation. The terms of such agreements must permeate every conceivable situation we've encountered in the history of Internet crime thus far and they must comply with the laws of a governing state. Since there is no "international" state or "international" law to date, the governing state is usually the state in which the job software system administrator conducts business.

All of this by far is a very broad introduction to the complexities involved in setting up a legal job software system and there are certainly more specific issues that each system must address. As we continue to build a global network that evolves, it's just goes to show you that while the world wide web is prone to illegal activity, it's still possible and reasonable to expect legal protection for job software systems once the proper tools are put into place.
