Following the promulgation of the GDPR on the 25th of May 2018, the manner in which employers handle employee, client and customer personal data has needed to be significantly revised in order for employers to ensure that they are meeting all of the obligations expected of them under the law.
Exploring the grey areas of employment law is a daunting task so, by taking a hands-on approach, employers and employees alike will gain a sound understanding of what is expected of them by discussing the salient points of the employment and the Industrial Relations Act and European law and applying them to practical situations.
Objectives of this session
The session has been designed to assist attendees in their understanding of how the GDPR’s provisions will impact the way in which employers process personal data, in particular on how employee and candidate data should be processed in order to adhere to the principles of data protection. Insight on employment-related issues will also be provided.
From legal definitions to practical case studies, this session will take a practical approach towards employment law, helping employers and employees grasp the more important concepts that apply to day-to-day work life. For HR and managerial roles, this session will help to improve corporate governance and provide the tools required to operate in a legally sound and fair way while employees will gain a better understanding of their rights and obligations and expand on existing foundations.
