Employers and your GDPR obligation

Tags: GDPR, seminar

On Tuesday 13 March 2018 SCE Solicitors are holding a one day GDPR training course.

The course has been divided up into two parts to provide benefit to both those who wish to receive a quick overview and those who want to understand the impact for dealing with employee details.

The morning session will be run by Dai Davies, a technology lawyer and a well-known speaker, and will provide a general overview of GDPR and how it will impact all businesses.  The afternoon session will be run by our Richard Newstead and will focus on the implications of employers.  

Data Protection has recently undergone a fundamental reappraisal with the enactment of the new European Union GDPR. GDPR will come fully into force on 25 May 2018 and businesses which do not plan for it will be severely disadvantaged. 

The new legislation is radically different from what is currently in place. Instead of a notional transparency through registration and consent under the existing legislation; real transparency under the GDPR is achieved through a series of rights given to individuals. Examples of such individual rights are: the right to object to data collection and the right to be forgotten. This is backed up by much more extensive obligations on data controllers to provide information on request and sometimes even before a request is made. 

If GDPR is already causing you headaches and you need some clarity on what the legislation says and how that may impact on you, your business and your employees, then join us on this one-day training course.

    Holland & Barrett Employee Wins Overtime Case

    A tribunal has ruled that Holland & Barrett made unlawful deductions from the pay of an employee who was required to carry out tasks beyond his contracted hours.

    Mr Fitz was employed as a supervisor and was required to cover for the store manager if they were absent. This required opening the store in the morning and closing the store in the evening, among other tasks that needed to be completed during opening hours.

    Closing the store involved four stages: closing the tills on the shop floor; reconciling the tills in the back office; closing the register and locking up the store, all of which Holland & Barrett told the tribunal took a few minutes. However, Fitz claimed that he also had to undertake other additional tasks at the … more
