Employment & HR Training: Handling Subject Access Requests & NEW GDPR
Under the Data Protection Act 1998, individuals (including your employees or former employees) are able to request access to personal data which your organisation may hold about them.
Many litigants will use a data subject access request (SARs) as a tactic before issuing an employment tribunal claim or simply as a “fishing expedition” to find out what information the organsiaiton holds. SARs put organisations to considerable time and expense particularly, as the scope and nature of the search involved is often complicated because of the sophisticated way information about staff is held.
Join Boyes Turner’s Employment Group for a briefing session which focuses on:
- The rights of individuals to access personal data under the Data Protection Act 1998;
- Determining a valid request;
- How to manage third party information;
- Managing SAR investigations;
- Preparing a response to a SAR; and
- Exemptions available to organisations faced with a SAR.
We will also discuss the new upcoming EU General Data Protection Regulation and the implications of Brexit.
This course is relevant to Directors, business managers, HR directors, business partners and officers, Data Protection Officers, Information Officers, Privacy Officers, Compliance Officers, Information and Commercial lawyers (in-house and private practice), Office Managers, Records Managers, and others.
