    The Risk of Parallel GDPR Investgations…To Companies Without an EU Presence

    The data protection authorities of the EU Member States (DPAs) are imposing ever high fines for violations of the GDPR. In June and July 2019, the UK DPA imposed large fines on Marriott (€111 million) and British Airways (€204 million) for data breaches that breached the GDPR.

Non-EU companies in particular face a risk of parallel GDPR investigations for the same conduct, and in each such case, the investigating DPR is authorized by GDPR to impose fines up to the maximums provided for the GDPR, which can be 2% or 4% of the company’s global group turnover, depending on the nature of the infringement.

    OA-Related Pitfalls in MNC's HR Management under China Law

    The information technologies("IT") have been imposing increasingly greater challenges upon the law, lawyers and their clients worldwide.

As a matter of fact, all MNCs here in China have applied the so-called OA systems in their daily HR management and business operations, with an effort to improve efficiency. In that scenario, I am going to draw on my professional experiences as a former trial judge and a current practitioner of law, to examine the legal features of the OA, analyze the legal challenges it poses on employment-related dispute resolution, and explore the precautions for employers to adopt against such challenges under China law.
