E102 What Supervisors Need to Know about Employee Privacy and Improper Disclosure
As a manager, you’re entrusted with a great deal of personal information about your employees. Access to this information carries with it a tremendous responsibility, and the appropriate care of it is a matter that shouldn’t be taken lightly.
Consider All Personal Information to Be Private - The issue of privacy is a murky mix of legal, ethical, and practical considerations. Privacy laws vary by state - there is no “one size fits all” model regarding disclosure of personal information. You must find out firsthand from your HR manager, employee assistance professional, or other advisor. At the very least, always keep personal information safe and confidential . . .
