Private use of social media advice provided to employees
Dear NSW Department of Planning and Environment,
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.
Thank you for your email. We will respond to your email within 5 working
days from today.
GIPA and Privacy information can be obtained from our website:
GIPA and privacy information is also available on the Information and
Privacy Commission's website: www.ipc.nsw.gov.au.
