European Union and Swiss law restrict the transfer of personal information to countries that do not provide an adequate level of privacy protection and EU and Swiss officials put the US in this category. As a result, in order for companies to transfer HR or other personal data from the EU and Switzerland to the US, additional steps are required. One way of lawfully transferring personal data is for a US company to join the EU and/or Swiss Privacy Shield programs, which provide a framework for transferring HR data and other personal information to the US. This session will discuss the Privacy Shield framework, its HR-specific requirements, and how build a compliance program and enroll in the program.
