Recently, the Commissioner issued Review Report 007-2019 which dealt with an Applicant’s request to access non-work related personal emails that were stored in their work-issued email account after their employment had ceased. In that review, the Commissioner found that the requested records were not in the possession or under the control of the public body. However, the Commissioner offered recommendations and best practices to assist the public body in the management of personal emails.
This resource, which can be found here, will further discuss considerations for public bodies in the management of personal emails and how proper management of these emails can assist in their access and privacy obligations.
