UIPA Memo 13-2
Denial of Access to
Requester asked whether the Department of the Attorney
General (AG) properly denied his request, under Part III of the
UIPA, for records from his arbitration hearing. The hearing was
the result of his appeal of the employment actions taken against
him by the AG.
OIP found the following:
1. The records are maintained by the Department
of the Attorney General and are subject to the UIPA.
2. Neither the collective bargaining statute nor
collective bargaining agreements preempt the UIPA.
3. The collective bargaining statute does not prohibit
Requester’s access to his personal records.
