Workplace Data Privacy

Our employment team contains a specialist group of employment lawyers who have expertise in handling the full range of workplace data privacy questions, from advising on: cross border data flows; monitoring; background checks and vetting; DSARs, ICO complaints; and the introduction of new technologies in the workplace.

Data Subject Access requests can prove particularly problematic to handle, involving as they often do, a huge volume of email correspondence which needs to be considered before disclosure. Handling these requests can be a headache for over-stretched in-house legal teams. Recognising this challenge we can offer a toolkit for a fixed fee with a menu of options which mixes strategic advice with practical assistance.

We can also help with:

  • policies, notification and notices
  • employee monitoring and investigations
  • ICO investigations
  • background checks and vetting
  • BYOD, social media and LinkedIn
  • data transfer
  • data security
  • manager training
  • data awareness e-learning course

Find out more about how we support clients with their international workplace data privacy needs through the Ius Laboris Data Protection International Practice Group.
