The 'Data' Day Life of a HR Professional - GDPR & the Employee Lifecycle
Since the introduction of the GDPR in May 2018, employees have become much more aware of their data protection rights and, just as importantly, the responsibilities of their employers. Everyone knows about the large fines imposed on British Airways and Marriott International, but what about smaller organisations and charities?
The Information Commissioner’s Office has recently shown that it will impose proportionate fines according to merit, regardless of the size or resources of the offending organisation.
The GDPR and Data Protection Act 2018 can be a minefield for the uninitiated and the purpose of this webinar is to provide clear and practical answers to everyday HR data protection issues and to help organisations reduce the risk of potentially crippling fines and reputational harm.
This will benefit not only HR professionals but those who advise them, both employment lawyers and compliance staff.
