Data Privacy

To meet a growing demand, VAN LEEUWEN LAW FIRM has built up over a number of years a strong expertise in data privacy in the field of labor and employment law.

VAN LEEUWEN LAW FIRM assists businesses in connection with the preparation and implementation of Internet & IT charters, code of conducts and whistleblowing programs.

VAN LEEUWEN LAW FIRM also provides advice on to what extend companies can implement tools to control and monitor the activities of their employees (video surveillance, geolocation systems, trackers, control and monitoring software programs, etc.).

In addition, the employer’s right to access the data (in particular e-mails and files) stored by its employees on their professional equipment (PC, laptop, phone, USB device, etc.) is a sensitive issue that becomes even more acute when the company has to gather evidence for a potential dispute with an employee or former employee, for instance in the framework of unfair competition practices. In order to provide its clients with the assistance they need in the most timely and efficient way including, but not limited to, in connection with their obligations concerning the required declarations of conformity or requests for authorization in case of processing and/or transfer of personal data concerning their employees, VAN LEEUWEN LAW FIRM has established and maintain regular contacts with several members of  the Dutch Data Protection Authority.
