A BDO Legal guide to staying compliant during the return to work in Europe
15 July 2020
Introducing the “BDO Legal employers’ guide to staying compliant during the return to work in Europe”. This whitepaper is focused on the key data privacy and employment law issues that employers should take into account during the return to a “new normal” following the COVID-19 pandemic. Most European countries are gradually lifting lockdown measures and companies are already preparing themselves for a return to the new normal. Many employers are struggling to stay abreast of fast-changing regulations and are unsure how to make sure they remain legally compliant whilst bringing their employees back to work.
The data privacy implications of monitoring employees’ health are potentially very serious and it is important for employers to understand how different national legislators are approaching this issue.
Likewise, the rights and obligations of employers and employees returning to work also differ quite significantly from country to country, which means that companies operating in multiple jurisdictions must keep on top of the relevant local regulations in order to avoid risking infringements.
