Employee data privacy in Europe – the Essentials for Multinational Employers – Publication

Indeed, the collection, storage, and transfer of personal data is an increasing concern among both employees and employers in every region of the world. Transferring data across borders is often problematic but is especially so from countries within the European Economic Area (EEA) to the U.S.

This publication is focusing on employee data privacy in Europe. It sets forth various privacy issues that employees and employers are likely to face in the workplace and the steps they can take to avoid, address, and resolve them.

The three key issues addressed in this publication are:

• the transfer of employee personal data outside of the European Economic Area*;

• monitoring employees while at work; and

• posting potentially incriminating photographs and/or comments about an employer or other employees on Facebook or via other social media avenues.
