Early resolution case summary #2016-03
May 6, 2016
- A federal works, undertakings and businesses (FWUB) is "any work, undertaking or business that is within the legislative authority of Parliament”. PIPEDA applies to all FWUBs and to the personal information of employees of, and applicants for employment with, FWUBs.
- A First Nation band council, when acting in its core functions, will generally be considered a FWUB, and as a result, the personal information of employees of a band council will be protected under the PIPEDA.
The complainant, an employee of a First Nation band council, alleged that on two separate occasions, doctor’s notes he submitted in support of leave requests were lost by the band office, which was refusing to pay him for his leave on the basis of not having the required doctor’s notes. In addition to filing a complaint with our office, the complainant also filed a complaint under the Canada Labour Code.
