Can my employer give out my address?

New York |

I may start working for a 01(c)(3) public charity in New York City.

1. Is the employer legally allowed to give out my complete home address or parts of it such as city where I live, including but not limited to by telling people who ask, publishing my address on the employer's website, or mentioning it in publicly available audio files?

If you do not know the answer, where can I find the answer free of charge?

I do not how to expect to keep your address private from the employer or from the world. Anyone who knows your name can find your location within 5 minutes on a computer. Try looking yourself up on people search and see what comes up. You have a right to privacy; but your home address is not private unless you are in the federal witness program. If you have a restraining order out on someone, you owe it to your employer to inform them so they know who to bar from the office.
