Ins and Outs of Florida’s Public Records and Sunshine Laws

September 12, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

On September 12th, join us to discuss the Ins and Outs of Florida’s Public Records and Sunshine Laws (open meetings). Whether e-mailing a co-worker, drafting a memo, or signing off on a work order, UF employees create multiple records every day. As state employees, we are subject to the Florida Public Records Law – one of the most expansive public records laws in the country. Therefore, members of the public, including the press, may request access to and obtain most of the work-related records we create or receive.

Assistant Counsel Amy Quillen, from the UF Office of the Vice President & General Counsel, will help us understand these laws and answer questions like: If I take notes at a meeting, can those notes be requested by members of the public? Are there any precautions I should take when sending work emails from personal devices (like mobile phones and computers)? And, my unit received a public records request, now what?
