Ex-Employee Can’t See Private Emails about Co-Workers

An energy company employee fired after 4 years of service demanded access to his complete file—payroll records, emails and information provided to other organizations about projects he was involved with. The company provided most of the items but withheld 4 pages of emails naming or referring to third parties to protect their privacy. No problem, said the Privacy Commissioner. The employee was entitled to information about himself, not about others [Talisman Energy Inc., Order P2012-04, June 22, 2012].
