Confidentiality for Retirees

Because a person is a public employee does not mean their right to privacy goes away. Too many think it should. In 2013 the Nevada Supreme Court ruled retiree benefit information was public.

The Legislature is processing a bill (SB 384) which would improve the privacy protections for retired public employees. The bill would clarify what information about retired employees would be public and names would be confidential.

The bill as introduced. The committee’s amended version has not been posted. The hearing was held on April 5, 2017.

Hopefully, the bill will become law. It now goes to the State Senate for discussion and vote.

This bill was vetoed by the governor on June 3, 2017
