Department of Justice employees will no longer be required to sign a Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure Acknowledgement, according to Attorney General Josh Kaul.
“It’s important that we lead by example. With today’s announcement, we are re-affirming the importance of transparency in government.”
AG Kaul goes in an email to DOJ employees that confidential information will still be kept confidential based on rules outlined to employees.
As of 2017, the DOJ required all new hires to sign the form. Earlier this year, that process stopped.
