Data protection laws are changing. The new GDPR will place new obligations on organisations as well as hefty fines. However, individuals (including your employees or former employees) will still be able to request access to personal data which your organisation may hold about them. Many litigants will continue to use a data subject access request (SAR) as a tactic before issuing an employment tribunal claim or simply as a "fishing expedition" to find out what information the organisation holds. SARs put organisations to considerable time and expense, particularly as the the scope and nature of the search involved is often complicated because of the sophisticated way information about their 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 and new GDPR
  • 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 GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) and the key implications for organisations. This new law comes into force from May 2018 and will mean big changes for organisations as well as heavy fines for those who do not comply.

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.
