Data protection for employees

Data protection for employees

Are you aware of the rules protecting your employees’ personal data? Are you aware of an employees additional rights under General Data Protection Regulations?

Data Protection legislation places obligations on your business to protect the confidential information you hold about your employees and customers.  Failing to comply with these obligations can lead to substantial fines from the Information Commissioner. With the introduction of the new European Union General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), it is now more important than ever to ensure that your business is compliant.

We can advise you on how to stay compliant to help prevent data breaches and fines, including how to respond to a Subject Access Request from a customer or employee asking to see the information you hold about them.  We can also train your staff on how they should protect your customers’ data.

If you would like to talk in confidence to one of our experienced solicitors or have any questions then please call us on 01268 240000 or email us at employment@palmerslaw.co.uk.
