What kinds of agency records are subject to the Public Records Act?

6. Personnel records

a. Personnel records open to inspection unless exempted by law

The general rule with regard to personnel records is the same as for other public records; unless the Legislature has expressly exempted an agency's personnel records from disclosure or authorized the agency to adopt rules limiting access to such records, personnel records are subject to public inspection and copying under s. 119.07(1), F.S. Michel v. Douglas, 464 So. 2d 545 (Fla. 1985). And see Alterra Healthcare Corporation v. Estate of Shelley, 827 So. 2d 936, 940n.4 (Fla. 2002) ("only the custodian of such records can assert any applicable exemption; not the employee").

In accordance with this principle, the following are some of the personnel records which have been determined to be subject to disclosure:

Applications for employment--AGOs 77-48 and 71-394; …

Resumes--Shevin v. Byron, Harless, Schaffer, Reid and Associates, Inc., 379 So. 2d
633 (Fla. 1980); …

Salary information--Lewis v. Schreiber, No. 92-8005(03) (Fla. 17th Cir.
Ct. June 12, 1992), per curiam affirmed, 611 So. 2d 531 (Fla. 4th DCA
1992); AGO 73-30; …

Accordingly, an agency should assume that all information in a personnel file is subject to inspection unless a specific statutory exemption exists which would permit withholding a particular document from disclosure. For more information on the exemptions applicable to law enforcement officers, please refer to the discussion of law enforcement personnel records found at s. F.11., infra. Exemptions that pertain to personnel records of educators are discussed in s. I.2., infra.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I would request your response within ten (10) business days.

Sincerely,

Susan Alyn

If the actual cost exceeds the monies deposited, you will be required to pay the difference before the request will be fulfilled and copies of the records released.

From: Susan A.

This seems to be the same message from you, now sent four times. Are you seeking four payments of $15 for a deposit or just a one-time payment?
And, again, your emails are publicly posted on MuckRock, and there is no attorney-client relationship here; just a request for certified public records.

From: Marni Scuderi

I have included all of the return addresses from your public records requests because I am not sure which is the best one to get an email to you at. Which address would you prefer that I use in the future? The deposit discussed covers the four requests from the email. Thank you, Marni

I believe MuckRock assigns an email address for each request. That is how they do it.

From: Marni Scuderi

If it is ok with you, I will email back to the last email which I have from you each time. Please tell me if there is a better method.

Thank you,
