HR data protection and privacy
Employers hold increasing amounts of employee data. More digital work styles will contribute to the build up as the lines between personal and working lives blur. HR teams need to be on the ball when it comes to data protection and privacy legislation. Good practice can minimise the risk of claims and enforcement actions.
Our team will help you spot, manage and mitigate data protection issues in your day to day operations and commercial transactions. That might include monitoring employees’ use of email and the internet, putting in place policies and guidance on the use of social media and even disciplining employees for inappropriate conduct online.
You’ll find useful background information on protecting employee data in our Guide to Employment Law. Please contact us for a copy.
