Decision Summary

  • Case Ref: FS50111290
  • Date: 3 August 2009
  • Public Authority: Brownhills Community Technology College
  • Summary: The complainant requested a large quantity of information from the public authority to assist in his case against dismissal. The Commissioner has determined that some of the information requested was the complainant’s personal data and is exempt under section 40(1) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the Act). He has referred it for an assessment under section 42 of the Data Protection Act (the DPA). Of the remaining information the Commissioner is satisfied that it has either now been disclosed to the complainant or else is exempt under section 40(2) of the Act. The Commissioner has, however, found numerous breaches of section 1(1)(a) and section 1(1)(b). He has also found breaches of section 9(3), section 10, section 17(1) and section 17(1)(a). The Commissioner does not require any remedial steps to be taken as he has already asked for information not previously provided to be released to the complainant and is satisfied that this has been done.
