Individuals that handle personal information at work have a legal obligation to safeguard it, however we have found that in some organisations few employees have even a basic understanding of data protection legislation.
This course provides a plain English translation of what the Data Protection Act means for employers. Through a case study approach we will ensure that delegates come away understanding the key principles of Data Protection, employee rights and how to avoid the common pitfalls.
In order to achieve this we keep the session extremely participative, focussing on the Company’s needs balanced against legislative requirements. Handouts and checklists are provided to ensure that important aspects of the legislation are not overlooked.
As with all of our courses, we will work with you to create the perfect course to fit your organisational needs but below you will find an example agenda...
- The 8 data protection principles
- The Employment Practices Data Protection Codes
- Recruitment and selection
- Employment records management
- Monitoring at work
- Medical information
By the end of the session attendees will have a basic understanding of the Data Protection Act 1998 and DPA Codes of Practice including how that affects management practices.
What will delegates learn?
- How to ensure data protection compliance across the organisation
- How to avoid potential fines for non-compliance
- How to improve data protection procedures
- How to protect the organisation’s reputation and credibility
Who should attend?
