  1. Lawful basis for processing your personal data

 

Generally, as your employer, BTRoS processes your personal data to meet its employment contract obligations towards you and to meet its other various legal obligations. BTRoS may also process your personal data if it has a legitimate interest to do so.

 

BTRoS needs to process your personal data to provide you with an employment contract, to pay you in accordance with your employment contract and to administer your benefits, pension and insurance entitlements.

 

In some cases, BTRoS might be required to verify an employee’s entitlement to work in the respective country, to deduct tax, to comply with health and safety laws and to enable employees to take periods of leave to which they are entitled.

 

For certain positions, it is necessary to carry out criminal records checks to ensure that individuals are permitted to undertake a specific role.

 

In other cases, BTRoS has a legitimate interest in processing personal data before, during and after the end of the employment relationship. Processing employee personal data allows BTRoS to, among others and without limitation:

 

  • Run recruitment and promotion processes.
  • Maintain accurate and up-to-date employment records and contact details (including details of who to   contact in the event of an emergency).
  • Operate and keep a record of disciplinary and grievance processes, to ensure acceptable conduct within the workplace.
  • Operate and keep a record of employee performance and related processes, to plan for career development, and for succession planning and workforce management purposes.
  • Operate and keep a record of absence and absence management procedures, to allow effective workforce management and ensure that employees are receiving the pay or other benefits to which they are entitled;
  • Obtain occupational health advice, to ensure that it complies with duties in relation to individuals with disabilities, meet its obligations under health and safety law, and ensure that employees are receiving the pay or other benefits to which they are entitled;
  • Operate and keep a record of other types of leave (including maternity, paternity, adoption, parental and shared parental leave), to allow effective workforce management, to ensure that BTRoS complies with duties in relation to leave entitlement, and to ensure that employees are receiving the pay or other benefits to which they are entitled;
  • ensure effective general Human Resources (“HR”) and business administration.
  • Provide employment confirmations on request for current or former employees; and respond to and defend against legal claims.
