GDPR & Employment Records

Various employment law statutes: -

  • Specify an obligation on employers to keep certain employment related records (e.g. records of employees working hours and pay rates) and
  • Set out defined periods for which these employment records must be kept by an employer (e.g. 3, 5 or 7 years depending on the specific statute).

These legal obligations are still in force and have not been affected by the introduction of GPDR.

Therefore, the specific records provided for under the various employment law statutes must still be retained by employers (notwithstanding that they contain personal data) and must be kept for the period specific in the relevant act.

Further details or enquiries, contact the WRC Information and Customer Services at 1890 80 80 90

(or 00 353 59 917 8990 - callers from outside of Ireland).
