This book considers data protection issues as they affect the HR department, looking at the implications throughout the employment lifecycle.

The book is divided into two parts. For the busy manager, Part 1 is an explanation of the implications of current data protection law and interpretation for all aspects of recruitment, administration, staff monitoring, training and employee benefits. Each topic is rounded off with a suggested action checklist to help you facilitate an audit of your compliance in that area effectively. For those who want a more extensive understanding of data protection law, Part 2 is a detailed examination of the legal requirements. This provides an explanation of data protection terms, thorough analysis of each of the eight Data Protection Principles and concludes with a review of the role of the Information Commissioner's Office and enforcement activity. If you are an HR manager and concerned to stay on the right side of the law of data protection, then this book is your essential reference.
