Copy of NRIC - Update 1 (Replies)
Hi HR Practitioners,
the recent announcement from PDPC with regards to copying of NRIC is quite unclear. Can HR of the company continue to copy NRIC for new Job Application or keeping a record in Employee P-file?
I think it is not encouraged to collect a copy for job applicants (HR officers can verify on the spot and return the NRIC if needed). A copy of NRIC can be made at point of offering/acceptance of employment for the administering/enrolment of employee related benefits.
You may wish to download the guide on NRIC from PDPC website.
Of course we need to know who we are employing and paying to the right name. I do not know if PDPA is an over-kill or over-emphasized hype.
Are we still allow to ask for NRIC number to verify payment made to the correct Freelance and contract staff that we have employed to work with us ?
For employment, PDPA allows copying of NRIC (for CPF contribution, IRAS submission, Government Childcare leave/Maternity/Paternity claims, Reservist make up pay claim purposes).
PDPA for HR Workshop
- 25 September 2018 (CONFIRMED)!
As HR practitioners often handle and come across employees and job candidates’ personal data, it is critical they understand how the PDPA can affect their work and policies. Thus, HR practitioners needs to review and re-evaluate existing HR polices and processes in order to align with the Act.
