Page 37 6.4. Hearing decisions delivered in 2011-12 One hearing decision was handed down in 2011-12. In this matter, a organisation refused to provide access to a workplace conflict assessment report on the grounds that it was exempt because: the report contained information that was of a deliberative nature (s52); disclosure of the report would have a substantial adverse effect on management and the conduct of industrial relations in the organisation (s53(c) and (d)); disclosure of the report would pose a serious threat to the life or health of certain employees or would prejudice measures for the protection of the health or safety of the public (54(a) and (b)); employees were told that the report would be kept confidential (s55); and disclosure of the information would be an unreasonable interference the privacy of certain employees (s56). The hearing Commissioner found that none of the exemptions claimed could be supported on the evidence provided by the respondent. The Commissioner ordered that the entire report be disclosed to the complainant.
