GDPR - What Does this Mean for HR?

What should HR teams be doing to ensure GDPR compliance?

According to legal experts with Clyde & Co., HR should keep staff informed of any changes to the legislation.  HR should also prepare and update policies and procedures, for example, those relating to recruitment and obtaining references and medical reports.

Another key item for HR is to educate staff about their data protection and security obligations, which also demonstrates that HR has taken steps to ensure that staff process personal data lawfully.  HR should also keep personal data no longer than necessary and implement data retention polices.

Last, HR should demonstrate compliance with data protection principles.
