In the upcoming webinar, titled ‘GDPR: Dealing with the data rights of your employees’ and brought to you by SD Worx and global law firm DLA Piper, HR professionals can learn about data subject rights ahead of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This is the first in a series of GDPR guidance webinars to be launched in the run up to May next year.
Once GDPR has taken effect from 25th May 2018, any business that holds the personal data of EU individuals, wherever they are based in the world, will need to be compliant. With the deadline now just six months away, it’s essential that HR professionals understand exactly how data rights are changing under the regulation.

However, by learning about the changes that need to take place in the HR industry, HR professionals are much more likely to be compliant by the deadline.

In addition, you will learn from practical HR cases based on:
