The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is coming into force as of 25th May 2018 and with it comes a plethora of changes as to how data is gained, handled, stored, and deleted. This article will give you a good overview of how GDPR for recruitment agencies can be handled.
GDPR is a new piece of EU legislation which replaces the current Data Protection Act and looks to bring together data regulations within the EU by giving consumers greater control over their personal information.
If you are based in Europe or have clients or process data from EU citizens, then you will need to comply with these new regulations. Despite being an EU initiative, on-going Brexit negotiations will not stop this legislation being introduced in the United Kingdom.
