Need a lawyer or solicitor to comment on this issue,

Regarding my former employers,

A lawyer acting on behalf of my former employers asked for consent to read my occupational Health Records to try and help me and would treat them with dignity and respect,

I declined his request and reminded him is duty was to his client not me,

The Lawyer then replied 'what is so special about your health records', I pointed out they belonged to me,

The Lawyer said he had a set copied by Occupational Health and wrapped and ready to be posted to him in London, He also said he did not need my consent written or verbal under settled law,

Can any Lawyers out there confirm yes or no to is claim,

I under stood settled law is with a judge in a courtroom not a lawyer in is office,


Regards Peter

I think you are right. Ask him for the source of the authority that he is relying on and tell him that if he doesn't produce it or if you disagree then you will refer the matter to the ICO and if necessary the SRA

If he doesn't need your permission why ask for it?

He's a shyster,  send him written denial of permission and copy in your former employer's legal department or HR - they should throw a pink fit at the lawyer trying to get this information illegally.

The ICO contacted me yesterday on the point of Settled Law,

They state that settled law if consent has not been given does not override data protection obligations and this could be a matter for the courts,

This is me now, The lawyer claimed he could read them under settled law and had over 30 years expirence in law,

The ICO have asked me if i want to make an official complaint to them on this matter,

I have made a complaint now to the SRA and sent tnem the Email from the ICO, But i think the SRA will fudge it,

Another thing is this now a matter of public interest Settled Law and Occy Health records being read without consent,

The public may or may not be interested, but a minor breach of data protection, which has not actually even occurred,  is not a matter of public interest.

Never assume anyone on the internet is who they say they are. Only rely on advice from insured professionals you have paid for!

Dear Emmzzi,

The lawyer concerned is a high profile Media Lawyer and is last client was phillip Schofield,

This lawyer is an arrogant man and needs to be made accountable for is actions and is methods which are dubious he keeps bringing is Christianity into everything what has that got to do with the Law,

My aim is to bring this out into the open so he and Lewis Silkin can't abuse  the ordinary working man and to educate is former client the biggest car manufacture in the uk,

And to make sure there Occupational Health Department follows the DPA laws in this country and not to prepare copies of an employees OHR to post to someone who does not fully understand the Law and will use any method at hand to win is case,

I feel you may have this out of proportion simply because some of the people involved are slightly well known.

That doesn't suddenly make it a huge breach.

Good luck to you; but I fear you are tilting at windmills.
