LIBE: Study on the Protection of Personal Data in Work-related Relations

Study on the Protection of Personal Data in Work-related Relations (pdf; PE 474.440) by Paul De Hert and Hans Lammerant (requested by the European Parliament's Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs):
This study looks at the possibilities to complement the general data protection framework with specific rules for employment relations. Data protection in employment relations clearly touches on labour law. The specific actors involved, the social partners, and the strategies used in the past to harmonise labour law, are taken into account. The study evaluates the application of the existing general data protection framework in employment relations and considers possible options to improve it.
