Synopsis: Covid-19 has highlighted the potential benefits and pitfalls of handling employee personal data, whether that’s through tracking vaccination status or monitoring employees as their working patterns change. But pandemic protection is not the end of the story. As organisations go through fast-paced digital transformations and engage new technologies they need to be alert to the risks and rewards offered when processing their employee data in new ways. The use of personal data in AI technology is a particularly hot topic, especially in light of the proposed EU AI Regulation, and specific challenges arise when considering HR and recruitment scenarios. Equally, employers increasingly look to engage HR analytics and address staff diversity. Processing personal data in that context raises further questions. These are just some of the areas where employment and data protection law is directly relevant to business day to day, especially as many aim to implement a globalised approach to people issues whilst meeting complex international data transfer requirements. Join our employment and data protection experts as they discuss perspectives from the UK, EU and the US, highlighting the opportunities and flagging the risks arising when handling employee personal data.
