ABA/ELA Transatlantic Conference: Employment Law Perspective of Data Protection, GDPR, and Privacy Shield

London, England

Ian Carleton Schaefer, Member of the Firm, joined a panel discussion, "Employment Law Perspective of Data Protection, GDPR, and Privacy Shield," at the 5th Annual Transatlantic Conference, organized by the International Committee of the UK Employment Lawyers Association (ELA) in conjunction with the International Labor & Employment Law Committee of the American Bar Association (ABA) Section of Labor and Employment Law.

The panel will review changes brought by GDPR and examine how far harmonization of employee personal data can happen across the EU. The session will consider some practical steps on how to best prepare for GDPR, including dealing with employee consent, transfer to the US, appointment of DPOs, and showing compliance at short notice.
