Right-to-Know Law and Governmental Records and Meetings
Join Legal Services Counsel Stephen Buckley and Municipal Services Counsel Natch Greyes who will provide guidance on handling governmental record matters arising under the Right-to-Know Law, especially in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Handling governmental records requests requires an understanding of all aspects of request processing including: the requirements for availability, storage, electronic records, redaction, cost estimates, mandated access for certain records and appointments for review of records. This webinar will also address what records are exempt from disclosure, along with whether a record request that would require a search for multiple documents must be fulfilled or whether a request impermissibly seeks to create a record that does not exist.
Recent New Hampshire Supreme Court decisions on exemptions for internal personnel practices and personnel records will be addressed in detail. In addition, guidance will be provided on the retention of governmental records and how claims under the Right-to-Know Law are enforced.
