Employment records

Nowadays, most organizations and corporations store their human resources records on electronic databases. Although many organizations and institutions (including the Open University of Hong Kong) now adopt measures to safeguard and protect the personal records of employees, the potential still exists for employment record privacy to be violated intentionally and unintentionally. Incorrect data information relating to an employee can have a strong negative impact on someone's career; for example, it could result in a wrong performance appraisal or prevent someone from achieving a promotion.
