Data protection and subject access rights have strengthened since the General Data Protection Regulation came into force in 2018. It has compelled employers to rethink how they gather, process, and provide access to employee data.

But how should you go about tailoring your processes to make subject access requests less of a headache for your organisation?

At our next HR Academy we will look at ways of simplifying the process so that you can respond to those requests efficiently, effectively and in a way that is compliant with the current framework. At the Academy we will cover: 

1.    The basics of the current legislation and what has changed since GDPR came into force
2.    Rights of data subjects including the right of access
3.    Streamlining the way you process, store and access employee data
4.    Data retention – why do it and how long should data be kept?
5.    How to respond to subject access requests – top tips on how to minimise the effort needed to retrieve and collate data
6.    Dealing with tricky issues – what to do with third party data; what can you withhold; and tactics in litigation
7.    Responding to complaints lodged with the ICO

Brodies Academy for HR Professionals is an in-depth, half day programme. It is designed to be highly interactive and will be delivered using case studies, worked examples and group exercises to ensure attendees get the most out of the day
