Publicly available information released following an FOI access request
The Freedom of Information (FOI) disclosure log contains information released by the Fair Work Commission in response to requests under the Freedom of Information Act 1982 (FOI Act).
Since 1 May 2011, the Commission is required by the FOI Act to publish a register of information that has been released in response to an FOI request.
The disclosure log requirement does not apply to:
- personal information about any person if publication of that information would be unreasonable
- information about the business, commercial, financial or professional affairs of any person if publication of that information would be unreasonable
- other information covered by a determination made by the Australian Information Commissioner if publication of that information would be unreasonable
- any information if it is not reasonably practicable to publish the information because of the extent of modifications that would need to be made to delete the information listed above.
The Commission will publish information in the disclosure log within 10 working days of an FOI applicant being granted access to a document.
Generally, copies of documents released under the FOI Act since 1 May 2011 are downloadable from the disclosure log. For access to documents that are not downloadable, please contact the Commission’s FOI Contact Officer by email to email@example.com, or by post to:
