The General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) originates in EU law. It is intended to provide protection for individuals’ personal data by imposing various restrictions on how other individuals and companies can use that data. 

Although the UK has now left the EU, the EU GDPR has been incorporated into our domestic law as the UK GDPR, albeit with certain modifications to take account of Brexit. In addition, further detailed rules sit alongside and supplement the UK GDPR provisions in the form of the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA 2018). 

GDPR and Data Protection considerations for employers

The GDPR regime imposes stringent requirements on employers and, as such, this poses a real challenge for HR professionals to ensure that they are processing employee personal data in a ‘fair, lawful and transparent’ way (and in accordance with the other data protection principles) and that they are complying with all applicable documentation and accountability requirements.
