Requesting employees' personal numbers may be in breach law - Commissioner

A circular sent by Enemalta’s HR department asking its 1,500 employees to provide their ‘personal’ mobile numbers and e-mail addresses may be in breach of data protection laws, according to Commissioner Joseph Ebejer.

Times of Malta is informed that the corporation’s new HR manager, former General Workers’ Union official Roberto Cristiano, recently gave employees two days to send in their personal contact details.

Various Enemalta workers who contacted Times of Malta complained Mr Cristiano had no right to ask for such information as this breaches data protection law.
