Penalty against public utility
A former employee of a public utility company asked to receive pay stubs because he needed them for the IRS. The former employer misstated these pay stubs several times. Due to the omissions, the person concerned had to submit an income assessment incorrectly to the tax office. The data subject subsequently filed a complaint with the data protection authority because the company had not complied with the obligation to make corrections (see GDPR Article 16).
The authority examined the facts and found a breach of the GDPR. Therefore, a fine of 5,000 Czech crowns was imposed. In addition, the company had to pay the procedural costs in the amount of CZK 1,000.
