Q. We’re cleaning up our personnel files and updating emergency contact information. Some employees don’t want to provide their contact information. Is it legal for us to require them to give it to us?
A. Yes. If employees express concern, you should explain to them why you are requesting the information—for their own safety—and ask them why they are reluctant to provide it. If they are troubled about the information being disclosed, consider keeping it in a confidential file.
