Employee Privacy Notice
Collecting employee data? You’ll need an employee privacy notice for employees, workers and contractors.
When you collect data, you fall under the watchful eye of the UK GDPR. And, with that comes a series of rules, regulations, and hefty consequences for noncompliance. In the case of employees, this is no different.
When you process and hold employee data, you need to communicate what it’s used for, why it’s being collected, and how long it’s going to be held. Similarly, you need to explain the legal purposes for processing data, and avoid processing employee data for any purposes not mentioned.
Examples of when a employee privacy notice is needed
Whether you’re working with contractors or building an in-house team, you’ll need to process the data of your hires. An employee privacy notice helps keep the ICO happy while sparking transparent communication with your team.
Data breach policy
In the event of a data breach, you’ll wish you had a data breach policy on hand. This policy includes information on minimising risk, handling a breach, and reporting a breach to the ICO.
Processing the data of external parties? You’ll need a privacy notice for that too. This legally required document communicates how and why you’re collecting data.
Data protection policy
Keeping up with data protection requirements can be a mammoth task. A data protection policy is an internal document that explains your processes, how to handle a complaint, and the obligations of the business and its employees to handle data correctly.
