Access to staff personal information

Accessing your staff personal information

To access:

  • your official university personnel file, contact the relevant human resources adviser within our Human Resources department by raising an HR enquiry within HR Assist or emailing hrassist@qut.edu.au)
  • personnel records from individual organisational areas that you have worked in, contact the organisational unit or your supervisor
  • personal information held by other areas of the university (such as health services, counselling services or Equity services), contact those areas.

You will need to come to the relevant QUT campus to view your information, and you’ll need to provide identification (for example your staff card or drivers licence).

Costs for informal requests

You don't have to pay to access your files, but we may charge a fee if you request a large number of photocopies of your records.

What we will provide to you

We'll provide your hard-copy file, as well as printed copies of any material from your electronic file that is not in your hard-copy file.

Before we supply your file, we will check it for any third-party or confidential material. We will remove any third-party material. If your file contains confidential material, our Right to Information Officer may recommend that you request access under the Right to Information scheme instead.

A QUT staff member will stay with you while you review your file. You must not mark, alter or reorder your file. You cannot remove or borrow any part of your file, but you can make copies and take those with you.

Formal requests under the Information Privacy Act

If you can get access to the information you’re looking for through informal requests, you can submit a formal request for access to information under the Information Privacy Act .
