Payroll Clearance Fund Escheated Warrants Report
The Department of Accounting and General Services
(“DAGS”) should disclose Payroll Clearance Fund Escheated
Warrants Reports for present and former state employees not involved
in undercover law enforcement capacities because disclosure would
not constitute an unwarranted invasion into the personal privacy
of these employees.
The names of present or former employees engaged in
undercover law enforcement capacities should be redacted from the
reports because these employees’ significant privacy interest,
recognized by statute, in information that identifies them as government
employees clearly outweighs the public interest in disclosure.
