10 November 2016 | London
Legal Briefings


The General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR") will apply from 25 May 2018 across all EU Member States, including, at least for a period of time, the UK (as recently confirmed by the UK Government).

New standards for consent, greater data controller transparency, enhanced information rights for data subjects, and significantly increased sanctions for non-compliance are likely to have a significant impact for employers who deal with employee data.

The Herbert Smith Freehills employment team have prepared a briefing focusing on the implications of the GDPR in the employment sphere and the practical data protection steps that employers should take in relation to recruitment, "business as usual" employment, and on termination of employment.
