The introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation in 2018 marked a significant milestone in the evolution of data protection law. In overhauling the 1995 Data Protection Directive, the GDPR made far reaching changes which increased the compliance burden on organisations and strengthened the rights of individuals.
The effects of the GDPR have been felt far beyond the European Union and the European Economic Area. Not only has the GDPR served to “raise the bar” for privacy legislation globally but its extra-territorial reach has meant that organisations outside the EU/EEA cannot afford to ignore its requirements. This is all the more so when the consequences of non-compliance can result in significant fines, compensation claims by individuals and material damage to an organisation’s reputation.
Interact Law members jointly created a new publication: A general guide to GDPR and its impact within and outside the EU: Do’s and don’ts for every business that deals with Data Privacy.
This guide provides an introduction to the GDPR and general information on complimentary national laws which have been adopted by many EU Member States. It goes on to consider significant cases that have come before EU national courts and fines which have been imposed by EU national data protection regulators. This guide goes on to highlight data privacy laws that have been adopted in a number of other jurisdictions, including the UK, the US, China and India.

Within Interact Law experts on Labor Law and Immigration collaborate to provide their customers the best service.
Latest Publication on remote working
To avoid the further spread of coronavirus employees across the global economy must work from home where possible. Clients that cover several jurisdictions need to know what the laws around home working are in these areas. During the pandemic employers and their staff have had to adapt quickly to create safe working environments. Laws have evolved and previously unconsidered rules have had to be enforced.
That this booklet will provide some answers to the questions below:
- Do remote workers have the same rights as those working in the office?
- Is there a right to, or can workers be forced to work remotely?
- Should a remote workplace be registered?
- What about a risk prevention protocol for remote workplaces?
- Should there be terms for a remote employment contract?
This document gives a brief insight into global employment rules regarding remote working.
Please don’t hesitate to contact the expert in your country if you need to know more. If your jurisdiction is not covered (yet), we’ll also be pleased to connect you with one of our contacts in the legal industry.
