15 May 2018

According to Alja Poler De Zwart in the Global Investigations Review article “Despite lobbying efforts, new EU data privacy rules leave companies in a ‘straightjacket’,” there is still confusion over whether companies can legally perform criminal background checks while staying GDPR compliant, and the European Data Protection Board won’t officially come into existence until May 25 to address the concern.

“Without member states’ authorisations, companies are in a sort of straightjacket,” she said.
