Employee Data Protection
Increased requirements for employers because of wealth of new legislation
As soon as the issue of workplace monitoring is raised, employers and employees tend to have widely different opinions regarding the admissibility of such monitoring under data protection and employment law.
New information duties for employers as well as extended rights for employees to request information are placing greater demand on employee data protection. This will in future be governed by the revised Federal Data Protection Act. In addition, various provisions under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that are relevant for all personal data must be complied with.
