The existing legal framework in India imposes severalpre-conditions upon employers with respect to collection, possession and transfer employee’s data. Therefore, employers need to be mindful of the compliances and conditions they are exposed to while collecting and dealing with such data. Failure to comply with the said legal requirements may attract severe sanctions (both civil and criminal) in terms of the provisions prescribed under applicable laws.
