CMS Employment Snack Special: Managing home office – HR navigating through control and privacy

Past event
23 March 2021, 10:00 - 10:45 UTC +00:00

This webinar is the Austrian edition of the three-part series "CMS Employment Snack Special: Managing home office – HR navigating through control and privacy". Here you can find the Slovak edition and the Turkish edition.

With the rise of home office and flexible working schemes, HR is increasingly confronted with a new set of challenges: how to control work-related behaviour, how to ensure compliance with labour law standards and how to measure productivity remotely? While good leaders manage to keep an eye on their employees’ productivity without their physical presence and had done so even before the current pandemic, others turn to advanced IT-systems, some going as far as de facto introducing the algorithmic boss, as a tempting solution. But these systems do touch upon employees’ privacy, human dignity and, of course, general data protection issues and need to be handled with care.

In this CMS Employment Snack Special, our labour law experts and our data protection specialists will navigate you through these HR challenges of remote work, balancing the need to control with the employees’ right to privacy.

Each webinar will last no more than 45 minutes, including a Q&A session. All webinars are free of charge and open to a wider public.
