Do you need help with the GDPR regulations?
The GDPR regulation came into effect on 25th May 2018 replacing the current Data Protection Act of 1998: standardising and strengthening the rights of citizens and employees to data privacy.
Private data must meet new standards of transparency, security and accountability. Employees are entitled to find out what data you store, how secure it is and the purpose of holding it on electronic and paper files.
To comply with the new regulation, you will have obtained consent from your employees to keep this information on file. Non-compliant companies can face fines up to 4% of annual global turnover or €20m (whichever is highest) for serious offences such as not gaining sufficient consent.
