Description

The General Data Protection Regulation will apply to organisations of all sizes and across all sectors. It will come into force on 25 May 2018 across Europe, including the UK, despite the Brexit vote. GDPR fines can be up to €20 Million or 4% of annual global turnover, whichever is greater. This legislation is not something that organisations should ignore.

We will provide a step by step guide to the changes that the GDPR is bringing and highlight the issues about which the insurance sector in particular should be aware.

CONSENT What it is, when you need it and when you don’t. 

PRIVACY NOTICES What to tell employees so your processing is fair.

SUBJECT ACESS REQUESTS What’s been tweaked and how to manage SARs.

DATA PRIVACY IMPACT ASSESSMENTS

When and how often you’ll need to do them.

RECORDING DATA PROCESSING The requirement for an audit trail explained. 

THIRD PARTY DATA PROCESSORS Why they are now in the firing line too. 

DATA BREACHES What to do when things go wrong.

 
Our speaker, Partner and Solicitor Advocate, Paul Motion, is a recognised expert in Data Protection and contentious IT/IP law. He has run many ground breaking cases, notably the only successful appeal to date anywhere in the UK against a DPA penalty imposed following a DPA breach.

Description

Construction Contracts What’s new in 2017?

Recently we’ve seen refreshed editions of the JCT suite of contracts and a number of the SBCC standard forms being published. NEC4 has also been released. We will provide an overview of the new contracts and discuss the importance of keeping up with the changes.

Caroline Earnshaw, Associate

 

Unfit for work? 

One of the most common issues for which our clients ask for assistance is ill health in the workplace. It is an area with many traps for the unwary.  We will look at the legal issues arising in relation to long and short term absence, ill health affecting performance, and the employer’s obligations towards disabled employees. We will also provide practical guidance on managing these issues and reducing the risk of claims.

Douglas Strang, Associate

 

Health & Safety Fines

BTO’s top tier Health & Safety and Regulatory Defence team will provide an update on developments in 2017, including the HSE’s Fee For Intervention regime and the implications of D Geddes (Construction) Ltd v Neil Johnston Health and Safety Services Ltd, which involves potential recoverability of health and safety fines from health and safety advisors if things go wrong.

Vicki Watt, Partner and Solicitor Advocate

 

GDPR Compliance – What does the construction industry need to know?

On 25 May 2018, the new General Data Protection Regulation will change the way in which organisations have to think about personal data.  This will affect how you process the data of customers, potential customers and employees. BTO’s Data Protection team will run through the significant changes coming your way in relation to consent; fair processing notices; marketing and data breaches...without mentioning the large fines that the regulator can impose if you get it wrong!
