How to manage changes to employee rights under GDPR
Almost half (47%) of UK office workers don 't know whether their company is taking action to comply with the new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), according to research from Fellowes. However, with the regulation intending to enhance individual's rights over their data, employers may want to consider how to manage GDPR in respect to employee data.
GDPR requires that all employers are data controllers of employee personal data, which will require significant changes to the way HR manages information. According to Fellowes, employers should also set up an internal process for their employees to raise requests, and for the HR department to have the opportunity to reply.
