Date Received
Response Notes

Responsive to this request, while no records exist acknowledging the receipt of reports from the Howard County Office of Human Rights, HCPSS has received three such reports during the timeframe requested. Under MPIA GP § 4-311, which prevents disclosure of personnel records of an individual, including records related to the hiring, discipline, promotion, dismissal or any other matter involving an employee’s status, we are denying release of each report. No clarification received to continue remaining request.
