The European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) What It Means For Employers

The GDPR includes a wide range of data privacy and security requirements which will impact all employers with EU-based workforces.

The GDPR comes with significant penalties for noncompliance - fines up to 20,000,000 EUR or 4% of total worldwide annual revenue of the preceding year (whichever is higher). Multinational group global revenues are at risk when fines are calculated, even if only a few group subsidiaries are caught by the GDPR or were responsible for the infringement of its requirements.

Employees will be able to take legal action against, and claim damages from, both employers and their vendors.
