Hello,

Yes, this may be done but the employer is responsible for ensuring that their agent keeps the documents confidential on behalf of the employer as the employer will be liable for any breaches of confidentiality or data protection legislation in the event that the documents are not securely stored.

Hope this helps. Can I help further?
