Disability Assistance Assessments providers TUPE to ATOS correspondence: FOI release

Information request and response under the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002

Information requested

Papers and correspondence relating to the preparation of, and discussion relating to, planned Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 actions relating to staff who currently work variously for IAS (formerly Atos) and/or Maximus/CHDA for the purposes of:

1. delivering disability assistance assessments by the Scottish Government and/or its health boards ; and,
2. establishing a bargaining unit for TUPEd staff who will deliver disability assistance assessments by the Scottish Government and/or its health boards.


An exemption under section 38(1)(b) (Third Part Personal Data) of FOISA applies to some of the information you have requested. Disclosing this information would contravene the data protection principles in Article 5(1) of the General Data Protection Regulation and in section 34(1) of the Data Protection Act 2018.

This exemption is not subject to the ‘public interest test’, so we are not required to consider if the public interest in disclosing the information outweighs the public interest in applying the exemption.
