businessmendating com - Orcon usage not updating
In the recent decision Taylor v Orcon Ltd, the Human Rights Review Tribunal ordered a telecommunications company, Orcon, to pay $25,000 in damages to Mr Taylor.
This case sends a strong reminder to agencies to check the accuracy of personal information before using it. Before the dispute was resolved, Orcon sent the debt to the collection agency, Baycorp.
But the Tribunal materially disagreed with the legal test we applied to determine whether the breach of principle 8 lead to interference with Mr Taylor’s privacy.
Causal connection On the issue of ‘causal connection’ between the harm claimed by Mr Taylor and Orcon’s action in breaching principle 8, the Tribunal stated no clear causation standard has yet been established.
