The UK Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) released updated guidance in May 2023 focused on how employers should respond to data subject access requests (DSARs) from employees. This new guidance is produced for employers in the format of a Q&A, and gives employers an idea on what to do in certain situations if an employee requests a DSAR.

In this podcast Lucy Densham Brown and Rebecca Dowle members of the Data Protection team at Clarkslegal summarise some of the key takeaways from that Q&A including:

  • Settlement agreements
  • Social media platforms
  • Personal email address
  • Redacting unrelated data
