Ins and Outs of Florida’s Public Records and Sunshine Law (open meetings)

Held on Tuesday, September 12, 2023.  Presenter: Amy Quillen, Assistant Counsel, Office of Vice President and General Counsel

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.

During the webinar, Assistant Counsel Amy Quillen, from the UF Office of the Vice President and General Counsel, discussed these laws and answered 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 cell phones and computers)? And, my unit received a public records request, now what?
