A Regional Guide to Employee Data Privacy

This Guide was originally published by Mayer Brown as part of A Global Guide to Employee Data Privacy.

Data privacy is a priority for all employers but especially those with operations in more than one country. A Regional Guide to Employee Data Privacy is designed to help employers navigate the specific, and increasing, challenges of handling employee data in different jurisdictions.

Covering 18 key countries, the guide contains:

Key Questions & Answers – covering applicant and employee personal data, privacy statements and policies, retention periods for employee data, transfers of employee data overseas and to third parties, sanctions for breach and potential pitfalls for employers; and

'In Brief' and 'In Detail' Guidance –both quick reference and more detailed content across all jurisdictions.
