Be prepared: update on EU employment data privacy laws
Global companies face stricter rules on employee data privacy, in particular when using social media and internal monitoring tools.
It also now becomes clearer that many EU Member States will use the opening clause of the GDPR to re-implement their "old" data privacy laws. An update to the GDPR includes information on use of social media and employee analysis tools, recruiting profiles, inspecting current employees, checking on post-contractual duties, restrictions on monitoring tools, and more.
In sum, said the update, it appears that EU employee data privacy law will be more fractioned which makes it indispensable for global companies to always also check for local compliance.
