2019-2020 Employee Handbook

Public Records

Under the Florida Sunshine Law, the contents of an employee’s personnel file are public records, with the exception of evaluations. Public records that are not confidential include employment applications, supporting data and employment history. Public records may be inspected and examined by any person upon request, at a reasonable time, under reasonable conditions, and under the supervision of the director of Human Resources. Copies of nonconfidential records will be provided upon request by the college’s records management liaison officer and upon payment to the college of the appropriate fee.

In many cases, compliance with public records requests will require the cooperative efforts of more than one College department. Any and all College departments receiving a request for production of records should promptly notify the Chief Fiscal Officer of the College, who is designated as the Records Management Liaison Officer. The vice president of administration and finance serves as the RMLO. For more information, see the Administrative Procedure for Public Records - Access.
