The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) is a new regulation. It has replaced the current Data Protection Act.
Organisations must have a valid reason for having personal data. This data should not be held for any longer than necessary. Both employers and their employees have new responsibilities to consider, helping to ensure compliance under GDPR.
After Britain leaves the European Union, a new UK Data Protection Act will ensure that the GDPR principles remain in UK law.
