The ABCs of GDPR for HR



Presenter: Danielle Vanderzanden, Ogletree Deakins

Original Program Date: July 2018 (available for on-demand viewing through December 2018)

Program length: 60 minutes

Many organizations looking for ways to improve employee hiring and retention view people analytics as valuable recruiting and human capital tools. A new EU law, however, affects how many employers in the United States collect, store and analyze data. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) became law in Europe in May. Because the law provides EU residents with substantial privacy rights, it applies to companies that do business in the EU or recruit employees from there. In this program, Danielle Vanderzanden, a shareholder in the law firm Ogletree Deakins, will discuss the law's requirements and its specific impact for U.S. based employers.
