Class Action Suit by Employees Over Insider Privacy Breach

Approximately 2,000 employees of a UK supermarket are suing over an insider data breach that involved the theft and posting online of the financial and personal details of 99,998 fellow employees by a disgruntled internal auditor.

"Whenever employers are given personal details of their staff, they have a duty to look after them."- Data Privacy lawyer Nick McAleenan, JMW Solicitors

Other employees who were affected have a four-month window in which to join the group claim. Data Privacy lawyer Nick McAleenan from JMW Solicitors said the case has “important implications for every employee and every employer”.
