Data protection & GDPR

Data Protection issues in an employment context can be a minefield with the laws applying not only to employees but also to job applicants, interviewees, workers and those leaving employment.

Since the introduction of the GDPR, businesses must ensure the following when processing personal data:

  • Compliance with the seven key principles laid down by the GDPR including that only relevant data should be processed for a period which is no longer than necessary; and
  • There is a lawful basis for which the data is processed;

Individuals have a number of rights under the GDPR with regards to their personal data and it’s important for businesses to be familiar with them. When you think about the numerous types of data which might be held for different individuals connected to your business, and the periods which you should do this for, it’s no wonder there is no “one size fits all” approach. For a business that gets this wrong and falls foul of the GDPR, it can be very expensive.

How can our employment team help?

The team at Thorneycroft Solicitors can offer practical advice on GDPR compliance and prepare the all-important Privacy Notices and Policies which govern how a business processes personal data.
