Don't Use Your Work Addy

When making a political donation, don't use the email address provided by your employer.

The legal department, over and over, warns that employees using the work email address could be interpreted as the company taking a political stance which could affect business and relationships with vendors.

If your employer is a government entity, which is supposed to be apolitical, then using your work email can been seen as the governmental entity you work for as choosing sides in a political debate.

In either case, you're likely to be fired over using the wrong email address as a violation of policy.

A policy that you are unlikely to be unaware of.

It wasn't your donation that has you looking for a job, it was that policy.
