GDPR: What Does the European General Data Protection Regulation Mean for Global Employers?

Eastern Standard Time
The General Data Protection Regulation takes effect on 25 May 2018. The legislation provides clear rules on how sensitive personal data for EU citizens should be protected and the governance for this protection.
Employers with European Union (EU) citizens as employees fall directly under the governance of this regulation. Whether you process personal data as part of payroll, share schemes, expense claims, or expatriate programs, or manage HR directly, your company owns responsibility for how the personal data is managed by your HR, Finance, and IT teams, and your Payroll vendors in each country.
