GDPR: Action List for Employers – episode 90

As an employer what actions should you be taking to comply with the GDPR 

Following on from the last podcast (episode 89) I continue to provide you with an overview of the ‘GDPR’ and what you will need to know as an employer.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force in the UK and across the EU on the 25th May 2018 and is the first major overhaul of Data Protection rules and regulations since the Data Protection Act 1995.

The GDPR is important for businesses who hold any type of data, whether about customers, contacts or employees, and the fines for getting it wrong can be very costly. In this podcast I bring you an action list to get started on ensuring your business is compliant with the GDPR from an employers perspective.

In this episode I will cover:

  • Consent issues for employers;
  • Actions you should take and why;
  • Ways in which you can simplify your compliance with the GDPR.
