 Data Protection in the Workplace

 

Course Overview:

Meeting the requirements of data protection law whilst handling staff data can be particularly challenging. Holding and using staff information carries significant legal responsibilities and risks.

This invaluable one-day session is designed to meet the needs of anyone who has responsibility for the use of employee data, including Human Resources Officers and Compliance Officers. It is also useful to Employment Lawyers and companies providing outsourced HR functions to other organisations.

This session, which is fully up to date with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Data Protection Act 2018 and the implications of Brexit, uses case studies based on real scenarios to give delegates a practical understanding of the data protection compliance issues involved in employing and managing staff. The session lets delegates know the key areas of risk, and includes practical advice on:

  • ensuring that the recruitment and selection process meets the legal requirements, including the content of application forms, pre-employment vetting, criminal records, medical checks and the interview process
  • retaining staff records, and appropriate periods of time for keeping information
  • dealing with information requests from staff - what must be disclosed and what you can withhold
  • disclosing staff information to outside third parties – the legal requirements that must be met before staff information can be sent outside the organisation
  • references and the rights of ex-members of staff
  • monitoring staff activities and communications, including using line managers, private detectives, CCTV cameras and website monitoring technologies
  • handling sensitive information such as health and sickness records and medical data
  • how to handle mergers, acquisitions and restructuring
  • outsourcing functions to third party providers
  • how to comply with the Employment Code
  • how to handle staff complaints
  • the role of the Information Commissioner and what to do if she investigates

Attendance on this course can be used as credit towards gaining the Practitioner Certificate in Data Protection.

Anna Pearson

“I am someone who prefers to attend a course in person and who likes to work from an office rather than from home. However, I felt I got as much from the course via eLearning as I would have by physically attending. In fact, it was good to be able to do it at my own pace and rewind/replay parts of the video lectures. I liked the format of video lectures, followed by more detailed documentation, followed by a mini quiz to test knowledge, as this all helped to reinforce the learning.”
John Hewes
Brighton & Hove City Council


“Good materials.”
Siobhan Austin
BDO LLP
