May I make a side bar comment that *storage* of personnel records, especially those of former employees, or applicants never hired, can create a quagmire of exposure with regard to privacy liability claims.

Most employers keep active employees' records under lock and key. But former employees' records are frequently boxed and in the basement, as are non-hired persons' applications and resumes. All of which contain continuing sensitive data, and which are easily available to prying eyes in unsecure areas. Just food for thought....

Some EPL markets are now extending coverage to privacy liability claims, sometimes only when identity theft occurs, other times when there's a *network* security breach. Still nothing one can depend upon for coverage, and ways to mitigate risk are probably worth considering.
