Employees in Europe: What Companies Need to Know about the New Data Privacy Regulations (GDPR)

Live Webinar: Monday, July 23, 2018

2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern / 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how the new European Union data protection regulation (the 'GDPR') impacts compliance obligations for businesses with employees in Europe.


 

Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), came in to effect on May 25, 2018 and provides sweeping protections for individuals regarding their personal data and replaces earlier data protection legislation across the EU.

With enhanced rights for individuals and increased obligations to comply with, businesses are working to minimize their risks and achieve compliance with the GDPR. Therefore, companies doing business in Europe must address how they’ll manage the new requirements against a challenging backdrop of growing risks around data security breaches, leaks, and hacks.

If your company uses or holds personal data on anyone inside the EU, your organization is subject to the new regulation, regardless of where your company is located. So, if your company has employees or contractors in Europe, beware — the new rules will apply to you and with potential exposure if you’re not in compliance with the GDPR.

Join us on July 23, for an all-new webinar designed to provide insight into the legal compliance aspects of the GDPR and some practical impacts and pointers for businesses with employees in Europe.

You’ll learn:

  • The key principles of the GDPR
  • The legal bases for processing personal data relating to your applicants, employees and beyond
  • The requirements for obtaining consent from European employees (and whether that is a good idea)
  • How long your company will be able to legally hold a former employee's personal data
  • What rights employees have regarding their personal data and what must happen if someone requests that you delete their information
  • The high cost(s) of non-compliance
  • Practical pointers for employers to comply with the new laws
