Observing data privacy obligations has become one of the main headaches for today’s employers. Throughout the past years, with the onset and development of several effective technological means which help employers monitor their employees’ movements and actions, the gradual erosion of employees’ entitlement to privacy was quickly overturned by the introduction of the GDPR, an EU regulation whose acronym has become a buzzword in general daily discourse.

Contrary to what many may think, the GDPR does not simply serve the purpose to effectively prohibit employers from monitoring their employees in any way. What’s important is that such monitoring is carried out in line with the provisions of the law and with respect to the employees’ legitimate expectations to privacy, which expectations are ultimately enshrined in law.

Employers who wish to implement certain degrees of monitoring within the workplace must ensure that they are doing so in compliance with their legal requirements, as monitoring is in itself a very delicate matter as the risk of impinging on employees’ privacy is high. Failure to ensure your are so compliant may result in a hefty fine from the data protection authorities, and so it is essential that you get it right from the start. This workshop will therefore address your obligations as a data controller in terms of implementing employee monitoring systems, what is and is not considered acceptable in this light, and any limitations or exceptions which may apply.

Who should attend?

Managers, Human Resource Professionals, Supervisors, Compliance Officers and In house legal advisors
