Episode Info

Episode Info:

In this episode of the podcast I cover the basics which employers need to consider with regards to Subject Access Requests when received from employees. 

In this episode I will cover:
  • A background to the law. 
  • What you need to consider at the outset. 
  • The time limit for responding. 
  • The type of data you have to search for. 
  • What you have to provide to the employee. 
  • Exemptions when you do not have to disclose the data. 
Action Points
  1. Have a person or persons within your organisation who are responsible for data and compliance with subject access requests. 
  2. Create a checklist or utilise the resources from the ico to create a workflow to follow if someone makes a request. 
  3. Seek advice before rejecting a request or requiring a fee to be paid.
