Date: 26 January 2022
Thank you for your request which I received on 26 December 2021. You asked for the following information:
the number of fines issued for people not working from home (both employees and employers) during the first lock down and also, how was this rule policed?
Following a search of our records, I can inform you that the Welsh Government does not hold any information that falls within the scope of your request.
Individual compliance under the Regulations is enforced by Police Forces in Wales.
Business and employer compliance with the requirements under regulation 16 (to
undertake risk assessments and put in place reasonable measures) is enforced by Local Authorities
If you are dissatisfied with the Welsh Government’s handling of your request, you can ask for an internal review within 40 working days of the date of this response. Requests for an internal review should be addressed to the Welsh Government’s Freedom of Information Officer at:
Information Rights Unit
or e-mail: Freedom.firstname.lastname@example.org
Please remember to quote the ATISN reference number above.
You also have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at:
Information Commissioner’s Office
Telephone: 0303 123 1113
However, please note that the Commissioner will not normally investigate a complaint until it has been through our own internal review process.
