GDPR for employers

Employers collate lots of personal data on their workforce, and this must be processed in accordance with the new requirements under the General Data Protection Regulation.

Data protection breaches can now result in fines of €20,000 000 EUR or 4% or worldwide turnover. In addition individuals can claim damages for distress caused by data protection, and so compliance is more important than ever.
