Data Privacy Act (DPA) - Employer’s compliance

Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]

Although we have already sought clarification on this to the NPC, Employers are also covered by this act, right? Such that all infos/data after an employee gets on board, the Employer must seek due consent from its employees for whatever personal details (which were not required or obtained pre-employment) they might be needing; hence, duly comply with DPA.

Please provide insights and feedback on this.

Thank you.

Yes, the Data Privacy Act is another matter that employers have to be aware of. They are covered by this law.

How about the wage of employees? can we get a copy of salary of every employee to determine the disparity in daily rate to apply the wage distortion properly? This is the problem that we encounter every time there is a wage increase in the minimum salary. The problem is the government adjust only the minimum wage and salary distortion is company prerogative. Is this correct?
