Hi there

Record request #21-35 has been closed. The closure reason supplied was:

Dear Requester -

 

The requested information is not deemed a public record pursuant to the Access to Public Records Act, R.I. Gen. Laws § 38-2-1, to prevent the disclosure of information which would constitute an unwarranted invasion of personal privacy and R.I. Gen. Laws § 38-2-2(4)(A)(I)(b), to prevent the disclosure of information which would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.

 

However, for your convenience, the Public Records Unit is releasing the date and type of time off of all police officers and/or employees who requested personal time off, vacation days, personal days, furlough days, or any other time off for the dates of, on, or between Jan 1, 2021 and January 8, 2021 as well as the dates of, on, or between Jan 1, 2020 and January 8, 2020.

 

Please note that generalized policy directives establishing the total amount of paid vacation or paid sick leave employees are entitled to claim could be deemed a public record, records accounting for the individual employee's use of that form of remuneration is not. Such records and information are highly individual to the employee, appertain very precisely to the person, and go far beyond the generalized employment information that the legislature has identified as public information. See, Blais v. Revens, 2002 WL 31546103 (R.I. Super. 2002); see generally Centazzo v. Centazzo, 509 A.2d 995 (R.I.1996).

 

In accordance with R.I. Gen. Laws § 38-2-8, you may wish to appeal this decision to the Chief Administrative Officer. In this instance, Steven M. Paré, Commissioner of Public Safety, fulfills that role. You may also wish to file a complaint with the Department of the Attorney General or the Rhode Island Superior Court.

  

 

This request is now closed.
