The EU and UK General Data Protection Regulations
What does GDPR mean for HR?
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.
The key requirements of EU and UK GDPR for employee data
How do the EU and UK GDPR regimes impact HR?
Please note: the information on this page is for general guidance only and is not legal advice. For further information about the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation please visit the ICO website.
We finally have an interactive on-boarding process, also a central location for all personal information to be stored which is quite important with GDPR.
Assuring the flow of data between the EU/EEA and the UK
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 reside and where their information is processed, so you can be sure you have appropriate data protection 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. The European Commission has granted the UK adequacy status.
The European Commission has confirmed that the UK had data adequacy. This means personal data can flow freely from the European Union to the United Kingdom, where it benefits from an essentially equivalent level of protection to that guaranteed under EU law.
