About Contract Staff
For people who are contracted to do work for us, (e.g., maintenance workers, cleaners), our primary purpose for collecting personal information is to ensure we can contact them in the future, (e.g., for new assignments), and for necessary work related communication, (e.g., sending out pay cheques, payment for services). Examples of the type of personal information we collect for those purposes include home addresses and telephone numbers. It is rare for us to collect such information without prior consent, but it might happen in the case of health emergency, (e.g., an outbreak of a contagious disease), or to investigate a possible breach of law, (e.g., if a theft were to occur in a centre or office).
