Initiative: Proposed Consent Agreement In the Matter of Ceridian Corporation, File No. 1023160
Attachments: No Attachments
As an employee of an L-3 subsidiary, I am definitely an affected party. My HR dept has just gone to Ceridian's Shared Services and has informed me that I have no other option other than to have my payroll information sent to ceridian. Instead, against my express explicit written request NOT TO DO SO, and therefore without my consent, my company sent my personal payroll information to Ceridain to set up an account for my payroll data to be processed by them. I do not want to remain in their database. After insisting that I have a response to my concerns, my HR dept informed me that my only option is to request that I receive a hard check, but I was put in their database anyway and NOT given this other alternative in a timely fashion to prevent them sending my information. I was told, too late, that this was an alternative, but that I now had to sign into ceridian's database to even request that I go to a hard check. I would like to see a requirement that the FTC make Ceridian inform all of their customers, including every employee who works for those customers, to be aware of this consent agreement and that we be provided the option to OPT OUT of their payroll system and that our personal data be purged if we so choose it. We employees whose data they handle are not being provided this information.
