Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. How has this actually affected your position, has any formal action been taken as a result?
No, no formal action had ever been taken but it has affected me mentally and I very nearly had a breakdown over it. I am worried that my file will be looked at about an unrelated disciplinary and I am worried that it may adversely affect their decision
any contents of your personnel file will amount to personal data under the Data Protection Act. the employer would have a legal duty to keep that data accurate and up to date. If you believe that the contents are not accurate or not kept up to date then you may challenge this and ask them to correct them as necessary. Full details on this duty can be found here:http://www.ico.org.uk/for_organisations/data_protection/the_guide/information_standards/principle_4
I hope this has answered your query and would be grateful if you could please take a second to leave a positive rating - your question will not close and I can continue providing further advice if necessary. Thank you
