Data and employees – the law after Morrison Supermarkets [2020] UKSC 12

Posted: 20/07/2020

Hardly a day goes by when issues of data protection are not in the headlines. Does any of this matter in the employment law context? The reality is that the misuse of data by employees can give rise to significant legal liabilities, whether it be administrative fines or civil claims, with the latter recently given a boost by the Court of Appeal in Lloyd v Google [2019] EWCA Civ 1599. Experience shows that employees are often all too willing to try to further their own interests by the misuse of their employer’s databases whether on a personal level or for a new or different business. This webinar by Christopher Lundie and Paige Mason-Thom provides an overview of this rapidly developing area and considers the important decision of the Supreme Court in WM Morrison Supermarkets v Various Claimants.
