Note to employees regarding recent ATIPP requests
15 March 2015
Memorial has recently received multiple requests under the Access to Information and Protection of Privacy Act, 2015 (ATIPP requests) for remuneration details of university employees (by position and, in one case, by name and position). The legislation expressly requires that the university disclose this information when requested and notice to employees is not required. The university’s Information Access and Privacy office is neither permitted to share requesters’ names or affiliations, nor can it enquire as to the purpose for a request. The university cannot control what requesters will do with the information they receive in response to ATIPP requests.
While not required, as a courtesy to impacted employees, in this instance we are advising the university community that in response to these ATIPP requests, the university will disclose the requested information. Details about these particular ATIPP requests, including the classes of employees or units affected, the type of information to be disclosed, and the dates the information will be disclosed are available at ATIPP Requests.
Given the recent public and community interest surrounding compensation policies and practices for many publicly-funded organizations, Human Resources has compiled some information at www.mun.ca/hr/administrators/hiring/Overview_Comp_Salaries_at_MUN.pdf to provide context.
