Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, I’m Ben, a UK lawyer and will be dealing with your case today. Firstly, I need to ask some initial questions to determine the legal position.
May I just check, is there any particular reason for asking?
Thank you. I am not available for a phone call at present but will get back to you with my answer as soon as I can, which will be at some point today. The system will notify you when this happens. Please do not reply in the meantime as this may unnecessarily delay my response. Many thanks.
Can I just check, what compliance with the DPA specifically are you asking about?
There is nothing specific in law which says an employer must give its employees X amount of notice to comply with the GDPR. Ultimately, it is the employer’s responsibility to work that out and they only had to ensure they are compliant by the date the law came into force, but how they did that is entirely up to them. So there is no direct answer to your question I’m afraid – you can trawl through the whole GDPR but you won’t find any specifics on how much notice the employer should have given its employees in relation to training them for the changes.
Does this answer your query?
No, there was no requirement to notify anyone, just to ensure that all practices and policies were compliant with the new laws
All the best
