Webinar: Data retention under the GDPR - your questions answered

Jo Broadbent Stefan Martin

With the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into effect on 25 May 2018, employers need to be putting in place their policies and procedures on data retention now.

Identifying which records to retain, and setting retention periods for different types of employee data, can be a complex exercise and create enormous practical challenges. How do you comply when employee data is held in numerous files, across multiple sites and in different formats? Should you take a different approach to different categories of data? And how do you deal with data that is collated following a recruitment exercise?

In this webinar, Jo Broadbent and Stefan Martin from global law firm Hogan Lovells tackle these issues and more, including:

  • requirements that apply to the retention of personal data under the GDPR, including transparency and record-keeping;
  • retention periods for particular types of employee data, from recruitment to post-termination; and
  • balancing practical necessity against legal obligation with a risk-based approach to data retention.

This 60-minute webinar includes a Q&A session.
