Confidentiality of Applicants’ Names

The UNC School of Government’s blog Coates’ Canons had a good post a couple days ago on the confidentiality of personnel information of local government job applicants. Read it here.

The short answer is that for city and county government, all applicant information is confidential. This confidentiality  likely holds true for public school employees, ” …but it is by no means clear.” It is a little complicated how we get to those conclusions, I encourage you to read the entire post.

As always, if you have any questions about this, or any aspect of public records law for local governments, please call or email myself or any of the Local Records Analysts.
