Employment Practices Code

Key Points

  • Please see our summary GDPR card here
  • The Employment Practices Code (the “Code”) dealt with the impact of the Data Protection Act 1998 (the “DPA”) on the employment relationship and in particular is concerned with information that employers might collect and keep on any individual who might wish to work, work, or have worked for them
