Good morning all
An NHS organisation I work with shares members of staff with a Local Authority to perform some compatible functions such as Commissioning. This is done under a Section 113 agreement of the Local Government act 1972. They are now looking to extend this function in to other areas.
Part of this involves the sharing of personnel files. This has up to now been done with consent.
With the extension of this in to other areas there is a requirement to share more staff files and a sudsequent worry by some members of staff about their jobs.
I believe GDPR restricts the use of consent as a means of processing in a works context so we should cease sharing these files using consent, I can’t see how it can be freely given.
Has anyone come across this before and how would you get round the consent issue with sharing personnel files?
I have asked HR for an opinion as I am way out of my comfort zone with this.
