Privacy regulations have taken a front and center role in the workplace and in other venues like technology, finance, health and medical healthcare, criminal justice, and social media. Employers are more than ever attempting to mitigate the line between their rights as Employers with those of employees.
Employers are clear that there should be no expectation of privacy in the workplace since employees are using company equipment like computer, telephones, Internet and other similar equipment. However, with the increase of data breaches in large well-known credit companies, financial and banking industries, retail, social media, and other industries, data protection, and privacy protection efforts have increased nationwide and Internationally.
All companies agree that data protection is critical for ensuring customers, employees, vendors etc. take this seriously. The EU has taken steps to make data protection not a “nice to have” but a “must have”. Though Internationally a company who has employees who work in the EU are obligated to ensure that the GDPR is followed, more US companies are considering using the GDPR as the model to follow albeit the number of regulations that need to be in place to ensure data protection.

On April 16, 2016, the European Union (EU) adopted the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) which focuses on the EU legal framework of data protection. The GDPR will become applicable on May 25, 2018, with large penalties also becoming effective. The GDPR is designed to reinforce the data protection rights for individuals and facilitate the free flow of personal data by a more uniform regulation adopted for US and EU businesses that have employees who work in the EU.
If a US company has EU based employees, they need to take steps to ensure that it is compliant with the GDPR by May 25, 2018. Additionally, how have penalties been levied? Learn which states are also adding strict privacy regulations similar to GDPR.
