Understanding GDPR Rights for Employees and Individuals

GDPR Rights for Employees

Under GDPR, every individual, including employees, is covered by data protection regulations. As an employee, your employer holds your personal data, granting you the same rights as any other data subject.

Employee Responsibility

As an employee, you also bear responsibility to ensure that you do not contribute to any breach of personal data within your organisation. Data security measures will be discussed further in the course.

GDPR Rights for Individuals

GDPR provides individuals with enhanced rights, including:

  • The right to be informed
  • The right of access
  • The right to rectification
  • The right to erasure
  • The right to restrict processing
  • The right to data portability
  • The right to object
  • Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling

These rights empower individuals to:

  • Be informed about the collection and usage of their data
  • Request access to their personal data held by an organisation

Providing Information

Organisations must provide clear, concise information about data collection and usage, typically outlined in a privacy policy. This information should be easily accessible through various means, such as email attachments, printed notices, or website privacy policies.

Individuals can request information from organisations regarding their personal data, granting them greater control over its processing.
