Employment Law is an ever-changing minefield which many line managers find daunting and confusing. We recognise this. The majority of employment law cases are brought before the tribunal system because managers lack the knowledge and expertise they need to ‘nip issues in the bud’ and minimise organisational risk before matters escalate out of hand. A loss in a costly employment tribunal case, including the hidden costs such as the legal costs, a drop-in productivity, sickness, absence, turnover of staff, loss of competitive edge etc, can put a business ‘out of business’.
We don’t want that to happen in your case.

Here, we aim to make it clear, concise and accessible and we aim to ensure it covers our data protection objectives, responsibilities and how we handle breaches under the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).
Here at HR & Diversity Management Limited (HR&DM) we take your privacy seriously and we will only use your personal information to administer your case and provide the products and services you have requested of us, and signed up to, under the Client Agreement and as per our Terms of Reference.

HR & Diversity Management will not transfer your data to a third party without your consent. Ordinarily, no one will have access to your Client File other than Directors and/or the named consultant. The only third-party organisations who may have access to your data are:
- A Regulator: During confidential internal audits we are legally required to cooperate. This is in order that we may acquire a Certificate of Authorisation and operate as a Claims Management organisation and provide employment law advice to you, our Client.
- Solicitors acting on our behalf in pursuit of client cases. This is currently Messrs Taylor Fordyce based in Winchester. Such referrals would only be made with your agreement. Any change to this third party would be notified in advance

The information you provide may contain personal information on third parties involved in your case. We will advise you to keep this to a minimum but will maintain the confidentiality of this information and only access it in pursuit of your case.
We create a Client File in your name. Your Client File is dedicated to your case and is confidential to yourself and ourselves only. We keep all data secure at all times. We ensure all data is relevant and up to date at all times. We will only hold as much data as we need in order to assess your case and provide advice to you, as instructed by yourself. We will allow a subject (ie; you, our Client) to see the data held on the Client File, by written request. We will not allow a third-party to access your data other than as stated above.
All documents held on computers at HR&DM are password protected and the content is encrypted.
Data will be held electronically where appropriate, but original hard copy documentation is often required in Employment cases. Hard copy documents and Client Files are held in a secure, fire-proof, locked-up storage facility with access limited to authorised personnel (ie. HR&DM Directors and named consultants).
Original documents provided by you, to us, to enable us to carry out research into your case and advise you, will be returned to you by secure, registered post.
