The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) affects all areas of your business including data of employees, workers and consultants. Employers process a lot of personal data on a day-to-day basis. This training course module helps HR professionals understand important GDPR definitions, principles, rules and guidelines.
During the recruitment process, you will collect a significant amount of information about a candidate. It is incredibly important to understand what you are collecting and why, to maximise GDPR compliance.
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way the organisations work; during the lockdown, entire workforces started to work from home. Now, despite some restrictions easing, many employers are choosing continue the flexibility of working remotely. This course will cover the HR and data protection challenges and opportunities that you will need to manage.
Individuals can claim compensation from data controllers and data processors for a breach of the GDPR. The compensation will cover financial loss, as well as damages purely for distress. This course helps HR professionals understand how to manage and respond to employee individual rights.
Organisations rarely put the same effort into ‘offboarding’ an employee as they do to ‘onboarding’ a new recruit. Be it a voluntary resignation, or an involuntary departure, like redundancy, the staff exit process is often overlooked increasing the risk of a data breach.
Data leaks are a serious problem for organisations and individuals. In this day and age, individuals freely provide personal information to organisations, therefore a data leak can have a significant impact on both the company and the person. They often involve the exposure of personal data (such as name, address and financial details), with additional damage to the company or organisation in terms of potential financial loss and reputational damage.
