Claim compensation for employee data breaches

You could be eligible to claim compensation for employee data breaches, whether you are the victim as an employee, or where an employee has caused a breach on behalf of a company that has affected you.

Workplace data breach compensation claims can be some of the most severe that we help people with. Equally, with so much information now being stored and processed by organisations, any privacy breach could lead to personal and sensitive information being misused or exposed.

The law can entitle victims of a data breach to claim compensation for any distress caused by the loss of control of personal information. Your Lawyers, as Leading Data Lawyers, are here to help you now.

Claiming compensation as an employee

Some employee data breaches can come down to your personal and private information being misused or exposed in the workplace. This could arise from someone revealing personal details about you to someone else when they should not have done so, or your information being shared without your specific consent. It could be caused by an accidental leak, where information about you is accessed or sent to the wrong person(s).

On an organisational level, if your place of work is hit by a cyberattack, your employer can still be liable to compensate you. If they did not do enough to protect your information, they could be liable to pay damages to you.

It is important to remember that your employer will store and process a great deal of very personal and sensitive information about you. As well as the usual personal details, there will be banking and financial information for wages and tax, and there may also be special category information about medical matters, sicknesses, or disabilities. There may also be notes about your performance which should also be kept strictly confidential. This is why data breach compensation amounts and pay-outs in such cases can be quite high.

Grievance matters is another one that should be afforded a great deal of protection from misuse or exposure as well.

Claiming for employee data breaches

Employee data breaches can come in the form of a leak or a hack being the fault of someone in an organisation. Perhaps you are a customer of that organisation – what do you do?

Generally speaking, the negligence of an employee can be the responsibility of the employer. The employer organisation can be held vicariously liable for the negligent actions of their employee. As such, you can direct your case for compensation to the organisation and pursue your damages claim from them directly.

We can assess your eligibility for a case on a no-obligation basis, so it is always worth speaking to the team to see if we can help you.
