“Views expressed” disclaimer is typically seen on blogs or other online media publications, posts or articles.

This disclaimer informs readers that the views, thoughts, and opinions expressed in the text belong solely to the author, and not necessarily to the author’s employer, organization, committee or other group or individual.

Otherwise, what one employee says may be construed as being what the entire company believes, thinks or condones, and this may be very inaccurate and damaging.

“Views expressed” disclaimers are seen most often in personal opinion writing by experts or professionals working in the same field of study as their post.
