Data protection for employers - rights and obligations, 1.12.2010

In general, companies can collect employees´ personal data. A prerequisite for the lawful processing of non-sensitive personal data is that it does not infringe an employee´s legitimate interest in the confidentiality of the data. This condition is met if there is an explicit legal authorisation or duty to carry out the processing and the data subject has expressly agreed to, or has a vital interest in, such processing.
