Employee data protection laws regulate issues specific to data protection law in the relationship between the employer and the employee. Here, the relationship of superiority/subordination that exists between the parties is particularly relevant, as certain limitations for the employer in the context of data processing result therefrom. With respect to the processing of data, the intended purpose of the employment relationship always has to be taken into consideration, plus the principle of necessity, which protects the employee’s general right to protection of privacy from infringements. Also, obtaining the employee’s effective consent to the processing of his data is not an easy task. We are happy to provide advice with respect to handling your employee data in a way that complies with data protection law.
