Regulation for Data Privacy and Ethical Development

Policy or Initiative Description

Governments should pass regulations to mitigate the potentially harmful effects of new data collection and surveillance tools on job quality and human dignity. In addition to a general default legislative framework, unions should also push for tailored regulation through collective bargaining, since optimal rules for data collection and use may vary considerably among workplaces.

European Union

Stringent data privacy regulations for workplaces and citizens already exists in other countries, including the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (which applies to all companies processing the personal data of data subjects residing in the Union, regardless of the company’s location).
