Workplace data breach claim for compensation

You could be entitled to pursue a workplace data breach claim for compensation if your right to privacy has been breached during the course of your employment.

With us, you are dealing with real experts that have been involved in ground-breaking data breach cases, as pioneers in this still-evolving area of law. Our track record, and experience, speaks for itself.

When can you pursue a workplace data breach claim?

You could be entitled to bring a workplace data breach claim for compensation in any setting when your private information has been misused during the course of your employment.

For example, this could arise from:

  • A manager disclosing your private information to colleagues without your consent and/or without any good reason to do so.
  • Email or postal leaks where information for you is sent to the wrong recipient. This could also include a mass email event to employees (or externally) that includes information about you.
  • Cyberattacks that result in the loss of control of your personal information, where it is stolen by hackers.

These are just three examples. The main thing to remember is that you are allowed control over who knows what about you. If your personal information is disclosed or misused in any way, and you did not provide consent for such disclosure, that is when you could be entitled to pursue a claim. If the control you had has been removed, that is when you could be entitled to make a claim for data breach compensation.

What could you be entitled to claim for?

When you pursue a workplace data breach claim, there are usually two parts to the legal case: General Damages and Special Damages.

General Damages can cover any distress caused by the loss of control of your personal information. The GDPR can entitle you to recover damages just for the distress that is caused by the breach itself, and most data breach claims are for the distress that a victim suffers from. If there are any losses and expenses as well, these could also be factored in, and are known as Special Damages. Importantly, you do not have to have lost any money or paid anything out to be able to claim.

As of the end of 2021, our average data breach compensation claim pay-out is just over £6,000. We have already recovered over £1m in data breach damages for mostly individual claimants, representing thousands of clients on a No Win, No Fee basis.
