The Work Connection needs information to perform its function as a leading staffing service. By learning about you, we are better able to serve you. But some of the information that we gather may be personal information that should not be made public. We call this information “nonpublic personal information,” or “NPPI” for short. As to NPPI, it is our policy to respect the privacy rights and preferences of our current, former and prospective employees, customers, vendors and other business partners and associates. In accordance with the non-mandatory Federal Trade Commission’s Fair Information Practice Principles,1 we provide this statement of our policy regarding NPPI.
This Notice tells you:
- What NPPI we might collect from you (or from others about you);
- How we use NPPI;
- Who we might share NPPI with;
- Our security policies and practices relating to NPPI; and
- Who you should contact if you have any questions.
- NPPI We Might Collect. If you are an employee or prospective employee, The Work Connection collects information about you in order to assess your work capabilities, qualifications, eligibility, preferences, performance and behavior. We also collect information required by government authorities such as the IRS in order to comply with our legal obligations. This could include the information you supply about yourself during the application process, information from prior employers and references, information available from public sources such as the internet, and criminal background checks. Some of this information may be NPPI, and would be subject to this policy. If you are a customer, vendor or other business associate, we may obtain information about you to determine whether and on what terms we will do business with you. Some of this may fall within the NPPI policy.
- Use of NPPI. To the extent permitted by law, we use NPPI:
- To verify employment experience;
- To verify work eligibility;
- To decide whether and on what terms to hire employees;
- To decide where to place employees;
- To make other employment decisions, including regarding discipline and termination;
- To administer payroll and benefit plans;
- To comply with our obligations to insurers, including workers’ compensation insurers, and to administer our worker’s compensation insurance program;
- To respond to requests for information from government agencies, including taxing, immigration, civil rights, labor, workplace safety, law enforcement and unemployment insurance authorities;
- To decide whether and on what terms to do business with customers, vendors and others; and
- As otherwise required or permitted by federal, state or local law.
- Who We Might Share NPPI With. As indicated above, we might share NPPI with the following:
- Our customers for employment-related purposes, such as if we think it might get you a job;
- Payroll and benefit plan administrators;
- Government agencies if we are required by law to do so or if it is necessary to comply with a government-issued request for information
- Our insurers and insurance plan administrators if necessary for insurance purposes
And of course we will release NPPI if you ask us to. Generally, we won’t share NPPI with anyone else, but we reserve the right to do so for any legally required or permitted purpose.
- Security of NPPI. We secure NPPI with physical, electronic and procedural safeguards. These safeguards comply with applicable laws. We retain NPPI as long as required by law, and destroy NPPI after it is no longer required to be maintained. We do not sell NPPI to mass marketing or telemarketing companies.
