Many thanks. I will respond to you at the earliest opportunity.

Many thanks for your patience. You should indeed be entitled to see the notes taken at any appeal hearing. It is not only good practice but can also be a right you enjoy under data protection legislation. If the employer is taking documentary notes of a meeting and you can be identified from the contents of the meeting, then that would amount to personal data and you have the right to see the transcript of such notes. If the employer is not allowing you to see them then you can make a subject access request with them to try and get a copy of these under the Data Protection Act.

This is your basic legal position. I have more detailed advice for you in terms of the procedure you need to follow to make a subject access request, which I wish to discuss so please take a second to leave a positive rating for the service so far (by selecting 3, 4 or 5 stars) and I can continue with that and answer any further questions you may have. Don’t worry, there is no extra cost and leaving a rating will not close the question and we can continue this discussion. Thank you
