Helping take the "aaaaarrrrr" out of SARs

The SAR challenge

With the introduction of the General Data Protection Regulation in 2018, individuals are increasingly aware of their rights.  One of these is the right to request to see what data a company holds about them.  This applies to requests from customers, suppliers and employees alike.

We have seen a  huge rise in the number of SARs brought by employees and HR teams are increasingly under pressure to comply.

Concerns & risks

Common concerns

  • How are we ever going to be able to gather all the relevant information ?

  • We have thousands of emails, how do we go about excluding irrelevant data?

  • What do we do if the documents refer to other people; what needs to be redacted?

  • How do we know what needs to be disclosed?

The failure to get this right

  • The individual can make a complaint to the Information Commissioner's Office, which will be logged against you

  • Risk of fines

  • Reputational risk

Why us

Adding value at each stage

We often find that employees submit SARs as a prelude to bringing an Employment Tribunal (or High Court) claim.  If we know this is likely to be the case, we can tag documents for their possible relevance to the potential litigation at the same time as going through them for the SAR, saving time and helping you prepare so that when the claim arrives, you are ready to handle it.
