Check your companies policies before collecting employee data

There are a range of things that Australian businesses can do to better manage the collection, use and disclosure of employee information.

Those include treating the collection of employee personal information in accordance with the Privacy Act; having a clearly expressed and up-to-date policy about the management of all personal information; ensuring that all personal information collected is reasonably necessary; providing a compliant privacy collection notice when proposing to collect personal information; obtaining employee consent to the collection of sensitive information; and ensuring that any third-party provider has the necessary policy and security measures to ensure the protection of personal information.
