UK: Three Aberdeen council workers sacked for breaching data protection rules
David Ewen reports:
Three Aberdeen council workers have been sacked for accessing private information about people, the Evening Express can reveal today.
The former employees of Aberdeen City Council got their marching orders after breaching the Data Protection Act.
A further nine members of staff were reprimanded for misconduct, which included leaking information from a police report.
The breaches were committed between April 1, 2011 and April 1, 2014 at the council, which employs around 9,000 people.
