One of the main principles of the GDPR is that data shall be processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner. These three elements overlap and all three must be satisfied in order to demonstrate compliance. The GDPR stipulates that anywhere personal data is being collected, either directly or indirectly, Privacy Notices should be in place.
Individuals have gained the ‘right to erasure’ or commonly known as the ‘right to be forgotten’. This new right came into force with the implementation of the GDPR. It essentially allows individuals to request for erasure of their personal details verbally or in writing.

By law, employers must provide employees with payslips which include personal data such as proof of earnings, tax paid and any pension contributions. It is advisable that businesses take steps to protect and securely send this payslip information.
