Data subject access requests, certainly since the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), are becoming more prevalent than ever in the workplace.
Under GDPR, Employees have the right to make a subject access request in order to gain copies of all the personal data held by their Employer. They might do this to strengthen their position during a dispute or conflict.
As an Employer, it is your responsibility to provide this information within 1 month. If you hold a lot of information on your employees, compiling the data and ensuring any third parties mentioned within are anonymised can be a time consuming task for which you may simply not have the resource.
We are experienced in handling Data Subject Access Requests quickly, securely and efficiently, maintaining confidentiality and providing you with a fit for purpose document and peace of mind.
