Mercer’s Connect V7 and other systems, I may have the capacity to access financial
and employee information outside of my unit of responsibility. I agree NOT to access

information unless it is part of my job. If it is part of my job to do any of these tasks, I
will follow the correct departmental procedure (such as shredding confidential papers
before throwing them away). I understand that I must obtain and retain a current copy
of the correct departmental procedures and will keep these procedures posted at my
work station. I understand that a copy of these procedures will always be available
from my supervisor.
