The Baden-Württemberg Data Protection Authority (DPA) has released a practical guidebook on employee data protection. In a press release, the DPA explained that this follows a rise in the number of complaints addressed to the DPA by employees. The guidebook analyses 13 cases that relate to employee data protection and provides cooperative solutions. The DPA points out that its aim is to give advice to companies, despite its primary role as a supervisor, and highlights that through early involvement of the DPA, new economic developments could also be seen in the long term.
