Private use of social media advice provided to employees
The request was refused by NT Department of Mines and Energy.
From: James Smith
Dear NT Department of Mines and Energy,
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act.
I request documents related to the ten most recent instances where an employee has sought information, advice, guidance, or opinion on their social media use in a private capacity.
I limit the scope of documents to:
- the original request from the employee
- the agency/department's response
- any follow-up questions and response
- only those sent to a relevant HR / conduct / social media (or similar) team (rather than managers across all areas of the organisation)
- where the original request was created in the last 2 years
Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.
From: Helen Cleanthous
NT Department of Mines and Energy
Thank you for your email.
I have attached a copy of our departmental Request for Information form for you to complete. Department of Primary Industry and Fisheries and Department of Mines and Energy are now one agency so there is no need to submit two forms. Please complete the attached form as we cannot accept this email as a request, and a $30 application fee is payable upon lodging a request for government information, as well as proof of ID.
Please be aware that the information you are seeking is of a personal nature about our employees, which could be a breach of their privacy and may be refused.
