New York: EDITORIAL: No right to know public employees’ addresses
May 10, 2023 // We believe information about public employees’ disciplinary records related to their jobs should be disclosed in many cases, especially when it affects public safety, such as in the case of police officers. Taxpayers have every right to know how public employees conduct themselves on their dime and to know how their supervisors handle accusations against public employees of malfeasance. The state Freedom of Information Law does not, nor should it, shield public employees from disclosure of actions that might embarrass them or make them look bad. We agree with that. But certain personal information about public employees — like their home addresses — should not be disclosed.
