Employers have been required to deliver information on employee wages, job evaluations, time studies, job classifications, and more. No case, however, has dealt with whether this duty included releasing the hiring and promotion aptitude test battery or the actual scores received by employees on the exam.|In Detroit Edison Co. v. NLRB, the United States Supreme Court held that the Board abused its remedial discretion by ordering the Detroit Edison Company to disclose this type of information. The reasoning in the case was based on the lack of adequate security given for the confidentiality of the information and the privacy interests of the employees.|The Detroit Edison decision is important in two respects. First, when set against the background of the general duty to supply information, the decision took an unparalleled approach focusing its attention, not on whether the information requested was relevant, but rather on the security provided for confidential information. Second, the resolution of the confidentiality issue evidences a new boundary to the scope of NLRB remedies. This article will discuss these two aspects of the case and suggest alternative remedies which may be available to the Board in future cases...en_US
