- Processing of data of employees of Gordon & Webster Zrt.
Data processing may also be carried out in the employment relationship on the basis of a legal authorisation (tax, social security legislation) or on the basis of the prior and voluntary consent of the data subject. The employee may only be asked to make a statement or provide data which does not infringe his/her right to privacy (1) and which is relevant for the establishment, performance or termination of the employment relationship (2). The latter is the equivalent of the purpose limitation of data processing under employment law. If either of these conditions is not met, no lawful processing can take place.
In the context of the establishment of an employment relationship, the data contained in the CVs are processed by the employer for the purpose of establishing an employment relationship, as provided for in Article 10(1) of the Labour Code. The data shall be processed in accordance with the Infotv. for as long as the purpose of the processing continues to exist.
For the purpose of fulfilling the obligations arising from the employment relationship, the employer may transfer the employee’s personal data to a data processor, stating the purpose of the data provision, as defined by law. The employee must be informed of this in advance. The legitimate purpose can only be the fulfilment of an obligation arising from the employment relationship. The conditions include the explicit consent of the data subject and an adequate level of data protection. If the data subject does not give his or her explicit consent, the employer may invoke Section 6(5) of the Data Protection Act again. The processing of data is in the employer’s legitimate interest and to ensure an adequate level of protection of personal data.
As a matter of principle, the employer is obliged to inform the employee about the processing of his personal data pursuant to Section 10(2) of the Labour Code. The employer may disclose facts, data and opinions concerning the employee to third parties only in the cases specified by law or with the employee’s consent.
The data transfer rules apply in all cases where the employer makes data available to third parties, including the employer’s owner, parent company, subsidiary or even within a group of companies. Data may therefore be transferred to them, but the legal limits must be taken into account.
