I have been trying to get up to speed with the new General Data Protection Regulations and the potential impact. A number of particpants have reported they have been on courses recently and that the changes are quite far reaching.
So I was interested to read how this could impact those businesses which use social media to assess applicant's suitability for a role:
An EU data protection working party has ruled that employers should require "legal grounds" before snooping.
The recommendations are non-binding, but will influence forthcoming changes to data protection laws
It would be interesting to hear your thoughts about whether this is acceptable or not?
All the best
