International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) | July.22.2021
Christian Schröder and Jeffrey McKenna led “#MeToo vs. GDPR: Investigating Sexual Misconduct by EU Employees,” a recorded panel featured during the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP) Data Protection Intensive Online Series. Christian, Jeffrey and other panelists from The Privacy Pro and TechData discussed how can employers can thoroughly investigate and respond to alleged sexual misconduct while protecting the privacy rights of Europe-based (EU) employees. The interactive session was based on a fact pattern and mock documentation concerning alleged sexual misconduct in a multinational company. Breakout groups then reviewed the facts, brainstormed answers to key questions raised by the scenario and reconvened to discuss each team’s approach. Key questions raised included whether text messages, emails and instant messages of a sexual nature be accessed from EU-based employees, including their mobile phones and how the data subject can be notified without violating the privacy rights of the accuser/accused.
