Any form of data breach in the workplace could have a significant impact on the victim. If this has happened to you, here is some advice about what you could do and how we may be able to help you.
Can you claim for a data breach at work?
You could be entitled to make a claim for compensation if you have been the victim of a data breach at work. Whether it is a case of a colleague accessing or disclosing private information relating to you when they had no right to, or an accidental leak or exposure of your personal details, you may have a claim.
You can even be eligible to claim where your personal information has been exposed due to a cyberattack. If there was more that your employer could – and should – have done to have prevented the attack from taking place, they could be liable to compensate you.
In short, if your personal information has been misused or exposed arising from a workplace incident, we may be able to represent you for a legal case now on a No Win, No Fee basis.
What could you claim for?
A compensation claim for a data breach at work can be serious, and pay-outs can be quite high. The reason for this is that the range and volume of information that your employer holds about you is typically quite extensive. There is the usual contact data, as well as financial and banking information for wages and taxes. There may also be medical and domestic information needed for support in the workplace, or for equality and diversity monitoring.
If exposed, this kind of information could lead to criminals committing ID theft and fraud, and it can cause significant personal distress. In most cases, people claim compensation for the distress caused by the loss of control of their personal information. The GDPR can entitle you to recover compensation for this, and this is one of the primary parts of a case that we pursue for people.
Our average settlement is currently in the £6,000 region. When it comes to extremely sensitive information, you could be entitled to more. And, if any money has been lost or stolen, this also could be factored into a case. You do not have to have lost money to be able to claim, but it is good to know that the option is there, where applicable.
