What to do when making a request

The Freedom of Information Act 2000 gives a general right of access to all types of recorded information held by public authorities, sets out exemptions from that right and places a number of obligations on public authorities.

Any person who makes a request to a public authority for information must be informed whether the public authority holds that information and, subject to exemptions, supplied with that information.

Before you make a request

Check to see if the information you are looking for is available via the Acas Publication Scheme or has been a previously released FOI disclosure?

If you are seeking information regarding Employment Tribunal claims please email your request to data.access@justice.gsi.gov.uk.

If the none of the above applies, please submit a Freedom of Information request in writing to:

Information and Guidance Team

Alternatively by emailing foi@acas.org.uk.
