All employers are responsible for holding and processing the personal data of their employees. The legal obligation to protect that data applies whether the payroll is processed in-house or is outsourced - in both cases, the employer has ultimate responsibility. The financial penalties imposed by the Information Commissioner’s Office for non-compliance have increased significantly in recent years and the maximum penalty will increase substantially under the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) so it is vital that your organisation is compliant.
This comprehensive half-day course carefully explains how the rules regarding data protection in the UK should be applied by your organisations payroll department. It will show you how to comply with the DPA. It will explain what is required of payroll departments to be compliant and what activities must be undertaken to remain compliant.
This course is intended for all people who work in payroll, human resources and the administration of pensions and rewards. It is suitable for all those with managerial responsibility for any part of an organisation processing personal data of employees, sub-contractors and other workers. Knowledge of the current law is not essential to attend this course.
