Robert Zacal, GA Solicitors

The impact of GDPR on your business is not confined to the information you hold on your clients; it has serious ramifications for your employees too. With a recent decision to scrap employment tribunal fees pending implementation, employment solicitor Rob Zacal of GA Solicitors warns of a potential exploitation of ‘subject access requests’ by employees keen to fish for information that could be used against their employers.

Rob will give his expert advice on what you can do to protect your business.
