Employment Law for Employees
Your employer will have to process certain information about you and other employees in order to monitor employment history, performance, and health and safety etc. However, this information must be collected and used fairly, stored safely and not disclosed to any other person unlawfully. In brief, your employer must comply with the Data Protection Act 1998.
If you consider that there has been a breach of the Data Protection Act in respect of personal data about you, you should raise the matter initially with the person responsible for dealing with data control at your employer. If the matter is not resolved it may be taken further in accordance with the company’s grievance procedure. If the matter is still not resolved to your satisfaction you may make a compliant to the Information Commissioner’s office.
If you believe that your data protection rights have been, or are being compromised, or you simply want more information about data protection law please contact Furley Page Employment Team.
