Data privacy is an evolving area of law and it can be hard for businesses to keep pace. Our lawyers offer advice on all kinds of workplace privacy issues - many of which have been raised by COVID-19, such as whether temperature checking is allowed, how to keep sensitive data secure and what the right balance is between an individual's privacy and the interests of the workforce as a whole.
