  • Summary

To help monitor and prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus in the workplace, organisations may need to collect additional personal data including health data from their employees and other relevant persons in some occasions.

Many people would have the impression that such kinds of additional data, especially health data, are sensitive and the collection of such data is privacy intrusive. Organisations may therefore have the questions on whether they are permitted to collect additional personal data during the COVID-19 pandemic period, and how to handle the data.

You can join this webinar to understand more about the privacy issues come out during the COVID-19  pandemic period and some recommendations to deal with them.

In this webinar, we will cover the matters relating to:

  • Collection of addition personal data and notice to the data subjects
  • Use of such data and disclosure to third parties
  • Internal control eg who can handle such data and retention matters
