Employee Home Address or Personal Telephone Number
An employee may submit a written request to the district not to disclose a specified public record indicating the home address or personal telephone number of the employee. An employee must provide evidence to the district to establish that disclosure of the home address or telephone number of the employee would constitute a danger to personal safety. Such evidence may include, but is not limited to, evidence that the employee or a family member residing with the employee has:
- Been a victim of domestic violence;
- Obtained an order under ORS 133.055 (citation in lieu of custody);
- Contacted a law enforcement officer involving domestic violence or other physical abuse;
- Obtained a temporary restraining order or other no-contact order to protect the individual from future physical abuse;
- Filed other criminal or civil legal proceedings regarding physical protection.
Written requests honored by the district shall remain effective:
- Until the district receives a written request for termination;
- For up to five years after the district receives a request.
The district may, however, disclose a home address or personal telephone number exempt from disclosure upon court order, upon request from any law enforcement agency or with the consent of the employee.
