Duty of confidentiality

Listen to a read-aloud version of the text on this page

As a public employee in either a school or after-school-program you have a mandatory, statutory duty of confidentiality, the basis of which is the ban against providing information on children and parents to third parties. There are, however, several limitations making it possible to cooperate with others to follow up on children and pupils:

  • Cases can be discussed anonymously
  • You may ask for consent. If the person with the right to confidentiality agrees to giving the information to someone, the duty of confidentiality is rescinded for as long as the agreement lasts
