So they have indeed breached the data protection act ?
So now do you think that I would be best just waiting for the ICO to push the organisation to release this 'document' which is referred too in the 2 documents I already have had released to me through the ICO, before working through my Union's legal team to seek redress and perhaps even compensation since not only have I lost out financially, but as result I have had to step down from my position and have suffered a work related stress / injury which has resulted in severe depression? Do you think that the organisation may well have b the DDA and H&S acts.
DDA and H&S acts ?
Yes Alex this has been helpful. I will wait for the ICO's assessment to be released and let my Union take it from there.
Dear Alex, could you give me a definition as to what the expression 'to hold the view' mean please? e.g. In a document the group held the view that John was off work because in essence he was bluffing ! Would that been seen as libel if found to totally untrue ?
Perhaps it is a Norn Irish term, I don't know but what I do know is that what has been revealed to me in writing to date states that my Kirk Session 'hold the view' that I have been off work, not because 2 doctors have diagnosed me as having severe depression, but because I didn't agree with a decision which they took. How could they possibly prove that in Court against the expert witness of 2 doctors ? Their comments along with untruths in an attempt to justify their allegation has caused me to fall deeper into depression. Is this libel ?
Are you saying that I Should I just simply forget the matter then as if it had never been written down in what I would see as an attempt to cause me hurt and injury as well as defame my good name ?
I will consult my Union Legal advice team, but in your opinion do you think that what has been written down about me is tantamount to libel ?
So if my UNION LEGAL TEAM WERE PREPARED TO TAKE THE MATTER ON, EITHER AS A PERSONLA INJURY CLAIM OR THE LIKE, THAT WOULD POSSIBLY BE MY BESY WAY FORWARD IN THIS CASE. IT REALLY HAS DAMAGED MY HEALTH THAT MUCH AND HAS CAUSED ME TREMENDOUS DISTRESS AND PERSOANL HURT.
