Private use of social media advice provided to employees

James Smith made this Freedom of Information request to WA Department of Racing, Gaming and Liquor

The request was refused by WA Department of Racing, Gaming and Liquor.

From: James Smith


Dear WA Department of Racing, Gaming and Liquor,

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act.

I request documents related to the ten most recent instances where an employee has sought information, advice, guidance, or opinion on their social media use in a private capacity.

I limit the scope of documents to:
- the original request from the employee
- the agency/department's response
- any follow-up questions and response
- only those sent to a relevant HR / conduct / social media (or similar) team (rather than managers across all areas of the organisation)
- where the original request was created in the last 2 years

Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours faithfully,

James Smith

Mostly I classify a response like this one to say "clarification requested" because the agency has told the applicant that some more information (and money!) is needed before the request will be processed. This time, I have put the response in the category of "refused" because it is two months when the agency has responded and the applicant has not made a follow-up. Although I have made the classification of "refused", the applicant can use this same request page if he wishes to pursue the request.
