The City of Calgary has wrapped up an investigation into a privacy breach in June involving over 3,700 city employees.
It relates to Workers’ Compensation Board claim reports from 2012 to 2016.
The information included WCB claim numbers, and names, but did not include birth dates, banking information, addresses, health numbers or Social Insurance Numbers.
The disclosure happened when a city employee, working with this information, was seeking technical assistance from another Alberta municipality.
The city says the information disclosure was a result of human error.
Registered letters are being sent to the employees who were impacted by the breach.
Alberta’s privacy commissioner has been contacted.
