Introducing our latest GDPR and Employee Benefits Guide
Pacific Prime Dubai is pleased to introduce you to our new GDPR and Employee Benefits Guide, which uncovers the most important provisions of the Regulation of the European Parliament and the EU Council on Data Protection (GDPR). The new data protection framework came into force from 25 May 2018, and binds all companies that process personal data of the EU citizens in connection with their business, and as such, it also affects all organizations outside of the European Union who process personal data of EU citizens.
Download our GDPR and Employee Benefits Guide today to learn in what way Dubai companies are affected by the changes, and how you can mitigate the risks associated with handling employee benefits and wellness plans in your organization.

Learning about GDPR and employee benefits plan compliance in Dubai
The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) primarily focuses on data and privacy protection of people living in the EU and the European Economic Area (EEA), but it also extends its jurisdiction to companies abroad, i.e., to any company that offers goods or services to subjects of the EU, or monitors the online behavior of EU citizens.
That means that any company that is based in the Emirates and handles personal data of European residents and citizens, and/ or carries out data processing activities on behalf of an EU business is expected to comply with the GDPR, even if they don’t have a direct presence in Europe.
This rule also applies to handling personal data of EU citizens working in your company and extends to your employee benefits, including medical insurance. In such instances, HR departments share personal data of the employees with third parties, such as insurance brokers and or/ insurance companies, and must ensure that these partners also comply with the GDPR where an EU citizen’s data is involved.
