Personal Data Protection in an Employment Context

HR departments often find themselves in situations where the correct handling of personal data is crucial. The employees responsible must, for example, consider factors such as the processing of personal data, personal data policies and declarations of consent.

The EU’s new General Data Protection Regulation entails stricter data protection rules for companies, which has a direct bearing on the management of personal data by HR departments. We have extensive experience in advising on all aspects of data protection law with a special focus on HR. 

For example, we are ready to help companies prepare personal data policies and declarations of consent and to advise on:

  • HR administration requirements
  • Processing of particular types of data, for example sensitive personal information, health information, employee data
  • Monitoring of employees
  • The rights of data subjects, including right of access to data
  • Transfer of data
  • Data protection issues in connection with company transfers
  • Use of data processors
