Data protection in the field of employment in Canada

June 2017 Employment Law and Data Protection Bulletin Lyndsay A. Wasser*

Regulation of data protection in the field of employment in Canada is becoming increasingly complex with workplace privacy involving a number of unique issues and challenges. In many cases, the amount and sensitivity of employee personal information handled by an organization is far greater than the personal information collected by the organization about customers and other third parties.

Regulation of data protection in the field of employment in Canada is becoming increasingly complex with workplace privacy involving a number of unique issues and challenges. In many cases, the amount and sensitivity of employee personal information handled by an organization is far greater than the personal information collected by the organization about customers and other third parties.
In order to assist our clients to understand these issues better, McMillan recently published a Guidance Note, Canada: Employment Overview in conjunction with DataGuidance – a global privacy intelligence platform for privacy professionals. This Guidance Note provides direction for organizations on how to handle confidential employee information.

If you have any questions regarding data protection issues in your organization, or would like to know more about McMillan’s Data Protection group, please feel free to contact Lyndsay Wasser.
