Confidentiality of Employee Information

  1. Good starting point: all information relating to an employee's personal characteristics or family matters is private and confidential.

  2. Information relating to an employee should be released only on a need-to-know basis, or if a law requires the release of the information.

  3. All information requests concerning employees should go through a central information release person or office.
