County Employees Must Maintain Confidentiality

On April 24, 2008, the Steve Patterson at the Chicago Sun-Times wrote an article entitled, "Stroger Wants Employees to Sign Confidentiality Agreement:"

"Just 18 months ago, Todd Stroger was campaigning for office on a promise to make Cook County government more open and transparent. Now, though, the County Board President is forcing anyone who works under him to sign a confidentiality agreement — promising they won’t disclose anything he deems 'confidential' that they 'learned, disclosed or observed' while on the job. They must also promise never to disclose information after they leave their job."
