Questions Regarding Data Protection When Dealing With the Current Pandemic

Online meeting: Tuesday, 21 April 2020 at 7 am PST, 10 am EST, 4 pm CET


The current crisis is forcing governments and companies to make rapid and far-reaching decisions. Due to this rapid development, we would like to keep you informed about the latest developments in data protection, so that you as an employer can answer any questions with data protection implications without unnecessary delay.

  • As a Company, do I have to report a potential infection to the authorities?
  • Am I allowed to collect private contact data of my employees in order to inform them about current developments?
  • Do I have to inform the staff if there is a potential infection in the company?
  • Can I pass on the name of the possibly infected person to the staff even without the person’s consent?

Are some of the questions that we will be answering in this online meeting.
