Are you and your business ready for the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which comes in to force in less than two months?

You will have seen plenty of courses explaining the legalities of the GDPR and re-iterating that the fines can be up to 20 million euros or 4% of annual turnover, whichever is higher. We have learnt that our clients want to know what they need to do to prevent any such fine.

The GDPR requires employers to provide more detailed information to employees than the existing law required. In most cases it is no longer sufficient to rely on employee consent as a basis for processing personal data.

Our team of experienced Employment Law solicitors are offering a package to help you ensure that your business is fully compliant. For a fixed fee we will:

  • Attend your offices in Surrey, Sussex or London to conduct a full data review to identify what data your business processes, stores and uses;
  • Review your practices and advise on the appropriate legal basis for processing the personal data you hold and use;
  • Assist you in recording the compliance steps taken to demonstrate you are GDPR compliant
  • Provide practical solutions and advice on areas where changes are required and where further steps need to be undertaken; and
  • Ensure you have the following relevant documents:
    • Data Audit checklist;
    • Updated Data Protection Policy;
    • Privacy Notice;
    • Employee consent forms, if applicable; and
    • Guidance letter for you to send to your staff.

Please contact us on 01483 411 533 or and either Emily Kidd or Keith Potter will be happy to attend your office to conduct the audit for you.
