Is employee monitoring technology compatible with GDPR?

Industry News | 20/10/20

The ongoing pandemic has entrenched remote working as a common practice in the financial services sector. A recent survey conducted by the British Council for Offices found that, once it is safe to do so, only 30% of UK employees plan to return to the office five days a week.

Understandably, many financial services firms are concerned as to how this will affect their oversight of their staff’s productivity levels, leading to an increasing number investing in employee monitoring technology. However reasonable these concerns may be, careful consideration must be given to employers’ legal obligations before implementing this technology.
