Assuring on-going compliance with EU and UK data protection legislation has placed a significant extra administrative burden on HR teams. With so much personal data to secure, keep up to date, delete, anonymise and report on, effectively managing compliance is impossible without the assistance of HR software.
Cezanne HR is a GDPR-compliant HR system that comes with a host of features designed to help you and your organisation meet legislative requirements.
If a business can’t show that good data protection is a cornerstone of their practices, they’re leaving themselves open to a fine or other enforcement action that could damage bank balance or business reputation.
For any organisation with an international workforce, the free flow of HR data between different geographies is essential to assure informed decision-making and effective HR processes.
It is important to be aware that different requirements apply depending on where employees are resident and where their data is processed, so you can be sure you have appropriate processes in place.
In the context of the EU, the flow of data is reliant on data adequacy, a status granted by the European Commission to countries outside the EEA who provide a level of personal data protection comparable to that provided in European law. At the current time:
- The EU has agreed to allow personal data to flow freely from the EU/EEA to the UK for 6 months from 1st January 2021 pending an adequacy decision.
- The UK had already agreed, on a transitional basis, that data flows from the UK to the EU/EEA can continue.
