Big Data Breaches Shine Spotlight on Laws Impacting Employee Data Protection
John Litchfield of Foley & Lardner reminds employers that there are new laws coming into effect that impact employers’ collection and protection of employee data. The following laws, he notes, come online this year:
- Alabama (effective June 1, 2018)
- Delaware (effective April 14, 2018)
- Oregon (effective June 2, 2018)
- South Dakota (effective July 1, 2018)
Additionally, for employers doing business in Canada, new laws impose a $100,000 per person per day penalty on any covered entity, including banks, telecommunications and broadcasting companies, and trucking companies, for failure to meet the federal notice of breach requirements.
