    Data Privacy versus Disclosure

    This presentation has been approved by both SHRM and HRCI.  Also, this has been approved for Global Credit.

    This luncheon seminar will examine the issues of data privacy versus disclosure, especially the new data privacy law passed by the European Union. Most people are willing to disclose an incredible amount of personal information about themselves for reasons of self-disclosure, friendship building, personal attraction, and/or arrogance. At the same time, most people are increasingly concerned about how this information is being used. Human resource managers have legitimate reasons to obtain personal information about job applicants and current employees for purposes of selection, job assignment, and employee benefits. However, employees do not want their personal information used to disadvantage themselves when it comes to employment or job advancement. The ethical issues associated with the collection and use of personal information have become increasingly crucial since the passage of the General Data Privacy Regulation passed by the European Union. Although this law was intended to regulate data privacy for European companies, it also applies to all companies anywhere in the world that have business dealings with Europeans. Consequently, most American companies are expected to comply with the provisions of this new law and the penalties for noncompliance are potentially very costly. Human resource managers need to know about this new law and how to balance the ethical issues associated with data privacy versus disclosure.
