Confidentiality Responsibilities and Expectations

Employees are responsible for overseeing the receipt, processing, storing, and retrieving of critical, confidential employee information. They perform these functions many times each day and are exposed to a great quantity of such critical information.

Employees are expected to perform their respective duties and responsibilities with a high degree of confidentiality and reliably handle sensitive information without using it for personal reasons.

Employee information which employees come in contact with is confidential, and misuse of that information is grounds for termination.

Each employee is responsible for understanding the consequences of violating the confidentiality of employee information.
