Code confusion to be cleared up

A
privacy at work conference is to be held next month to try to resolve confusion
over the Data Protection Code.

The
Privacy at Work section of the code is intended to provide recommendations for good
practice, which employers will need to follow if they are to comply with the
Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act and the Human Rights and Data Protection
acts.

Iain
Bourne, strategic policy manager at the Information Commission, said, "
Hopefully the conference will help us produce a better product, and one which
is going to used and understood."

The
conference will be in Manchester in June.

The
privacy at work code of conduct will be issued in sections covering areas such
as recruitment and monitoring, and will be published towards the end of the
year.
