Workplace data breach compensation claims can be one of the most severe types of privacy legal cases that we take on for victims on a No Win, No Fee basis.

The reason for this is that the nature of the information that can be exposed can be personal and sensitive, and it could be voluminous. This can mean that the impact for the victim can be substantial, which is why these kinds of legal cases can be so serious.

Workplace data breaches: why so serious?

Workplace data breach compensation claims can often be some of the most serious that we take on for people. The reason for this is down to the nature of the information that could be misused or exposed, and the impact that this can then have on an employee in the workplace.

In terms of data that could be misused or exposed, it could include:

  • The usual personal and contact details;
  • Financial information and bank account details for issuing wages;
  • National Insurance information;
  • Tax and earnings information;
  • Medical, disability, and other protected details about a person that may be needed for equality and diversity, or to meet the needs of an employee.

If any of the above is misused or exposed, it could have a serious impact on the victims. This kind of information is what we tend to want to keep private and confidential, and if financial data and details that could be misused for ID theft are exposed, the damage could be severe.

In some cases, it could also impact the ability of the employee to even remain in their employment. Some people may feel that they can no longer work for an employer or with certain colleagues when private and sensitive information is exposed, and this element may need to be taken into account.

How we assess compensation amounts

We usually assess data breach compensation amounts by looking at factors that include:

  • What (the nature and how much) information has been exposed or misused; and
  • How this has personally affected the victim; and
  • If there are any losses and expenses to factor in.

Generally speaking, most claims are for the distress caused by the loss of control of your personal information. The more sensitive and personal the data can be, the worse the impact can be; and, therefore, the higher the amount that could be claimed. This is why workplace data breach compensation claims can be significant in terms of pay-outs, because the impact can easily be substantial owing to the nature of the data involved.
