Upcoming webinar

Processing without consent - taking a deeper dive into the GDPR

Wednesday 6 December, 2:00pm GMT

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which comes into effect on 25 May 2018, will make it difficult for employers to process employee personal data on the basis of consent. This means that they will generally have to rely on different grounds.

The process of choosing the best legal grounds for processing can be tricky, as this will affect the content of employee privacy notices and the rights employees have related to their personal data.

In this webinar, Jo Broadbent and Stefan Martin from global law firm Hogan Lovells will discuss:

  • the strategic considerations for determining the legal basis to process different types of employee personal data;
  • how to incorporate the legal grounds for processing into employee privacy notices; and
  • how to amend any HR-related contractual or policy documents to include requirements related to the legal grounds for processing.

This live 60-minute webinar includes a Q&A session. Register to submit your questions to the speakers in advance.
