Getting to grips with GDPR - SFA Employment Law Conference

Whats on the horizon?

This year’s SFA Employment Law Conference will be a vital opportunity for SFA members and other small businesses to understand recent changes in employment law and what they mean for your business, now and in the future. You will learn to protect your business interests while ensuring that you are acting in line with best practice and in compliance with the law.

One of the topics covered at the covered will be the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which is due to come into force on 25 May 2018 and will have major implications for all businesses.

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) very significantly increases the obligations and responsibilities for organisations and businesses in how they collect, use and protect personal data. At the centre of the new law is the requirement for organisations and businesses to be fully transparent about how they are using and safeguarding personal data, and to be able to demonstrate accountability for their data processing activities.

The GDPR significantly increases the scope and nature of administrative fines for non-compliance, with the effect that failure to address data protection compliance obligations could prove very costly, in financial terms, for businesses with fines of up to €20 million or 4% of annual turnover

At the SFA Employment Law Conference, Nichola Harkin, Ibec Solicitor, will be highlighting what you need to know about GDPR and the implications that this ground breaking piece of legislation will have on your business. Attendees will gain a practical insight into what the GDPR means for their business and how to get started on the path to compliance.


Who should attend?

  • All owner managers or managers in small businesses who need to build their competence and confidence in the vital area of employment legislation.


  • SFA Member rate: €190 + VAT @ 23% (€233.70)
