Yesterday during the C2C UK&I event we discussed in detail the offboarding of Google Workspace accounts, and what organisations do with users data, specifically email.
Interestingly this generated a lot of differing views, and whether it was ethical to migrate email from an employee leaving the organisation to say a colleague or a manager.
What if there were personal conversations between the employee and HR was an example used?
From a legal perspective, and with clear employment contracts in-place the emails are the property of the company.
What are your thoughts on this, do you migrate email or just archive and only access if necessary?
