We are going through a situation where we have a former employee who will continue to do contract work for us. The boss thinks it is normal to IMMEDIATELY suspend their accounts and delete their email. What is normal for your organization with regards to terminated employees?
What if they will remain working on a contract basis (which requires an email account)? Do you keep their access to their email archive if they say it will help do their job better?
If you work at a university, what is the policy in regards to professors who may be in the middle of research projects and leave for another university? Do they retain access to their accounts?
