Workers Data Rights - Making sure the human remains in human resources

Join this great interactive panel to discuss how to fill a regulatory gap with regards workers' data rights. Across the world, corporations are increasingly gathering, storing and using internal as well as external data in their human resource management; for example in recruitment, promotion, disciplinary or layoff processes. Some experts even ask whether data is taking the human out of human resources? Whilst consumers in many countries are covered by data privacy and protection laws, a huge regulatory gap exists: namely on workers' data rights and protection. This session will address this gap by discussing why this is an issue, what companies can and should do, and what solutions are available. For unions, filling this gap will be the next frontier for collective bargaining, industrial policies and global framework agreements in the digital economy.
