I sent a question in. Case ID# XXXXX For some reason I don't see it here. Please let me know if you received it or can get it.
I am an IT contractor for a Local Labor union in Los Angeles California. The union is under Federal Investigation by the Department of Labor. The investigator would like me to send her a name and address list of all members relating to a recent election. The investigator would not provide me with and documentation that she is an FBI employee or that she is conducting an investigation of any kind. She made this request over one phone call. The labor union has given me verbal authorization to release the files to her. I asked her for a confidentiality agreement. She refused. She says she is going to issue me a subpoena to obtain the information. What should I do to protect myself in letting out this information? I believe this information is governed under the HIPI laws.
