Can I publish a list of my employees and their titles (first name and last initial only) on our corporate “Meet our Team” section of our website without their consent?

Steve Duggan replies:

Yes, you can. I don’t see how anyone could claim that that information was private. You also could publish their office address and phone number and any other information that is owned by the business. Only their home address, home phone number and personal cell number would be entitled to privacy. In some cases, such as domestic violence, where there is some personal threat, you should of course first consult with HR and Legal before published any information that might put an victim/employee at risk.

Information here is correct at the time it is posted. Case decisions cited here may be reversed. Please do not rely on this information without consulting an attorney first.
