As multinational employers are aware, data privacy laws can vary greatly from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Ensuring compliance with the different requirements can be challenging, and the penalties for noncompliance can be severe. FordHarrison has joined with Ius Laboris member firms to produce Data Privacy in the Americas, a summary of the significant requirements of data privacy laws in the U.S, Canada and Central and South America. This guide provides key information at a glance on important aspects of data privacy laws and regulations, employee recruitment, monitoring at work, employee personal devices and third-party data transfers. The guide is available on the Ius Laboris website, http://www.globalhrlaw.com, as well as the In-Depth Analysis page of the FordHarrison website.
FordHarrison is the sole U.S. member of Ius Laboris, a global alliance of leading law firms providing legal services in employment and labor law, pensions, and employee benefits.
