Rödl & Partner to advise EU´s ELA on Data Protection

The Technology, Media and Telecommunications Department of Rödl & Partner Spain, led by lawyer Jorge González, has been chosen by the European Commission this year to advise the newly created European Labour Authority (ELA) in the field of Data Protection

-

The fact of receiving the stamp and approval of the European Commission to be able to provide advice to EU institutions reinforces the commitment of Rödl & Partner to the technology sector and to offer cutting-edge technical advice in this field.

The European Labour Authority (ELA) helps ensure that EU rules on Labour mobility and social security coordination are enforced in a fair, simple, and effective way, and makes it easier for citizens and businesses to reap the benefits of the internal market.

The European Labour Authority was established on 31 July 2019 and its activities started in mid-October 2019, with the first Management Board meeting. ELA is expected to reach its full operational capacity by 2024. The Regulation 2019/1149 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 20 June 2019 established the European Labour Authority and sets out ELA’s objectives, tasks and organisational structure.

According to ELA, even if the EU has developed a substantial body of legislation regulating different aspects of mobility, including free movement and posting of workers and social security coordination, enforcing EU rules across the Member States effectively requires structured cooperation and exchange between competent national authorities, as well as resources for common activities, such as organising joint inspections or training national staff to deal with cross-border cases. ELA was created to tackle these issues.

Jorge González, head of the firm´s TMT department, will lead the advice. Jorge is an experienced lawyer in IT, IP, Data Protection and Media & Entertainment, having worked in the same areas at Eversheds Sutherland and DLA Piper.
