Data Protection and Staff - Employer's obligations

As an employer, there is an obligation to register as a data controller and comply with the provisions of the Data Protection legislation.

The Information Commissioner’s Office provides useful materials about remaining compliant and navigating this complex legal landscape and has this month published a useful guide to Data Protection and The Employment Practices Code.

It covers:

  • What the Data Protection Act means to an employer;
  • Recruitment and selection;
  • Employment records;
  • Monitoring at work;
  • Information about workers' health;
  • What rights do workers have?
It is worth a read!
