Data Breach Obligations
Whether your company owns, licenses or merely maintains personal information about your employee, nearly every state has requirements on when and how affected individuals must be notified of a data breach, and many states also require notification be made to state attorneys general, consumer protection agencies, national credit bureaus, and perhaps even the media. Third-party payroll and benefits companies are only obligated to notify you, not necessarily your employees, in the event of a data breach. Employers who suspect personal information about employees may have been compromised should immediately contact legal counsel.
