TO MODIFY DORMITORY REQUIREMENTS IN CERTAIN COUNTY DETENTION FACILITIES.
House amendment makes the following changes to 1st edition. Adds Section 1.1.(a) stating findings by the General Assembly that the release of information in public employees’ personnel files to criminal offenders places employees at risk. Section 1.1.(b) amends GS 126-23 to prohibit release of state employee personnel information that is otherwise a public record to individuals who are in the custody of or under the supervision of the Department of Correction or a local confinement facility absent a court order. Allows release of certain state employee personnel information to an attorney investigating allegations of misconduct or abuse by a DOC employee, but prohibits the attorney from providing copies of such records to an offender absent a court order. Amends the bill title accordingly.
