The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) relates to the processing for all personal data. It can be a challenge because it requires the complete overhaul of the entire HR function including HR IT systems and processes.

The 99 GDPR articles have introduced a series of changes to the way employees’ personal data is handled because it expands employees rights. At the same time,employers are liable for any data processing activity involving personal data. The liability widens because the GDPR considers any activity involving personal data as a ‘processing’ activity holding the data controllers accountable for the actions of third-party data processors.

During this workshop we go thru the critical components of demonstrating compliance like legal basis,  to consent to retention and how to ensure monitoring policies and protocols agree with the purposes for which they have been implemented — for example, monitoring employees’ IT systems and work-related communication to prevent theft of intellectual property.
