FIA-13-0024 - In the Matter of Laborers’ International Union of North America, Pacific Southwest Region

On May 9, 2013, the Office of Hearings and Appeals (OHA) issued a decision remanding an appeal (Appeal) from a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) determination issued by the Loan Guarantee Program Office (LGPO).  The Appellant appealed LGPO’s decision to withhold certain portions of the payroll documents pursuant to Exemptions 4 and 6. OHA reviewed the documents and concluded that LGPO properly invoked Exemption 4 to withhold information pertaining to hours worked, rate of pay and gross amount earned of the employees.  However, OHA found that LGPO did not properly invoked Exemption 6 to redact similar information as it did not contain personal identifying information.  Thus, OHA remanded the Appeal.
