Freedom of Information

The Freedom of Information (FOI) Act, 2014 applies to the Low Pay Commission (LPC). The FOI Act establish three statutory rights for citizens:

A right for each person to access information held by public bodies;
A right for each person to have official information relating to himself or herself amended where it is incomplete, incorrect or misleading; and,
A right to obtain reasons for decisions affecting oneself.

The FOI Act allows public access to official information held by the Commission which is not routinely available through other sources while also acknowledging the public interest and the right to privacy of individuals. Access to information under the FOI Act is subject to certain exemptions and involves specific procedures and time limits.

All FOI applications, or requests for further information on the FOI procedures, should be addressed to:
