I’m thinking about asking our management company to provide a list of their employees for the sake of transparency. Since homeowners (including me) pay the dues that pays for management fees, I feel like this is our right, but some of the other board members disagree. Thoughts?
Are you asking for a full list of their employees (that’s probably an extensive list) or just those working in your community? Because I don’t see why you would need even the names of back-end employees “for the sake of transparency.”
Our management company gives us an annual report consisting of the names of managers, staff members, and accountants who are handling our HOA. We don’t ask for it – they just give it to us voluntarily. We also don’t ask for the names of other employees who are not handling our HOA because there is no point to it. I think you can askk your management company for the list of employees taking care of your HOA but anything beyond that seems a bit unreasonable, don’t you think?
I don’t think it’s unreasonable a tall. If they have an employee with ah istory of fraud or criminal activity, I think we have a right to know. We don’t want a management company if it comes with a higher risk of financial dishonesty.
Whether your management company chooses to hire ex-cons is totally up to them and their judgment. You don’t get a say in that. Also, how would you even know thay hire ex-cons? Are you gonna do a background check on every employee? Sounds like a lot of wasted time and resources. It could also be seen as discriminatory.
In that case, you can ask for the employees who are working on your account/association. It doesn’t make sense to ask for all the names of the employees, even the ones who have nothing to do with your HOA.
