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.
