With the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into effect on 25 May 2018, employers need to be putting in place their policies and procedures on data retention now.
In XpertHR’s 60-minute webinar from Wednesday 14 March, Jo Broadbent and Stefan Martin from global law firm Hogan Lovells discuss:
- requirements that apply to the retention of personal data under the GDPR, including transparency and record-keeping;
- retention periods for particular types of employee data, from recruitment to post-termination; and
- balancing practical necessity against legal obligation with a risk-based approach to data retention.
The webinar includes a Q&A session.
