Private use of social media advice provided to employees

James Smith made this Freedom of Information request to SA Department of Treasury and Finance

The request was refused by SA Department of Treasury and Finance.

From: James Smith


Dear SA Department of Treasury and Finance,

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.

Yours faithfully,

James Smith
