Access to employee records denied, Scottish Parliament sidelined 04/11/2004

About the DPA 1998, may have some implications for FOI overlap

"The Government has stated that it will not change data protection law to give employees in the UK the right of access to their own employee records irrespective of whether the employer holds them on computer or not.

The Government has also decided neither to extend the protection of the data protection principles to all manual employee records nor to give the Scottish Parliament a say in whether or not employees of Scottish public authorities should be treated differently."
