Beryl Lipton filed this request with the Department of Corrections of Missouri.
Multi Request Post-incarceration employment options and reports - September 2018


From: Beryl Lipton

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the The Missouri Sunshine Law, I hereby request the following records:

• All policies related to the employment and payment of incarcerated persons under the jurisdiction of this agency.

• The most recent report regarding currently-employed incarcerated persons under the jurisdiction of this agency. Please include all available segregable information, including the type of employment, the wage at which the employment occurs, and any other applicable information. Please do not include any personally identifying information.

• All reports regarding post-incarceration employment for individuals formally under the jurisdiction of this agency.

If no such reports exist and if reports with equivalent information also do not exist, confirmation of the fact that no data at all exists on this subject will suffice.

Please feel free to call the MuckRock office for further clarification: 617-299-1832.

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 there are fees, 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 look forward to receiving your response to this request within 3 business days, as the statute requires.

Re: Request for Records

Dear Ms. Lipton:

Please accept my apology for the delayed response to your request for records. It was confused with another request and was inadvertently overlooked.

On Oct. 15, 2018, our office received your request records regarding offender employment and payment. It might take up to three weeks to provide records responsive to your request.

If you have any questions or would like to clarify or further limit your request, please contact me.

Ms. Lipton,

The below referenced request was forwarded to me for response. Attached are the procedures regarding offender employment responsive to #1. The records could not be uploaded to your link as it has expired. Our research department is working on #2 and should be able to pull a report regarding statistics of employed offenders in the institutions. This will be provided when completed and I estimate completion by the end of next week. For #3, the Department does not track post incarceration employment except for offenders on parole who self report as part of the supervision. This information should be in the report the research department is currently working on for #2.
