Abberufung nur aus wichtigem Grund? Der EuGH muss über den besonderen Schutz für Datenschutzbeauftragte entscheiden

Dismissal only for cause? ECJ decision: Special protection for data protection officers

Special protection for data privacy officers

Special protection for data protection officers with a function as advisors to a data processing entity can only be adequately met if the data protection officer can act completely independently. For this reason, his or her position in the company is particularly protected under the General Data Protection Regulation. In particular, Art. 38 GDPR states that a data protection officer may not be dismissed or disadvantaged on the basis of his/her duties. This is intended to ensure that a data protection officer is able to perform his or her auditing and advisory duties in a truly independent manner and does not evaluate data protection issues in a biased manner for fear of professional consequences.
