Jo Stubbs, Head of Content at XpertHR Group says,
“The wide-ranging impact of the forthcoming changes to data protection law means that questions on the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) continue to dominate our top five HR questions.
“One area of change covered in this month’s top five questions is the effect of the GDPR on data subject access requests. Employees will continue to have the right to make such a request to obtain details from their employer about any personal data it holds relating to them. However, the time frame for responding will be shortened and employers will no longer be able to charge a fee to provide the requested information.”
