An essential quick reference for understanding the B.C. and Alberta Personal Information Protection Acts

This Quick Reference provides guidance and interpretation of the Personal Information Protection Act (PIPA) in both British Columbia and Alberta. It explains what personal employee information can or must be kept by the employer, what it can be used for and with whom it can be shared. It outlines employers requirements in each of the two provinces with respect to the collection, disclosure, enforcement rules, process and use of personal information by organizations.

New in This Edition:

• Updates on case law from both provinces that interpret and apply the legislation. • Information on recent decisions from Alberta on contractors and others deemed to be employees, GPS surveillance of employees, jurisdiction under the Act and limitation periods. • Information on case law from British Columbia relating to political parties, the disclosure of information in the context of labour relations, reference checks and social media. • Details on the joint investigation of Facebook completed by the Federal Privacy Commissioner and the Information and Privacy Commissioner for British Columbia.
