Dickson Offers Recommendations in Two Reports
PERSONAL PRIVACYNovember 16, 2012
Saskatchewan Information and Privacy Commissioner Gary Dickson recently completed two investigations, reports The Regina Leader-Post. In one report, Dickson addressed a complaint from an SGI employee who said her information was accessed by coworkers when the insurance company processed her personal claim. Dickson recommended the company take steps to better protect employees’ information when they make a personal claim for compensation and determined the company could not use information in the claim for return-to-work planning without the employee’s consent. In another report, Dickson said a lack of clear mail-handling policies at the Workers’ Compensation Board contributed to personal information being sent to the wrong people.
