7.0 Profiling (Automated Decision making)

LA Security ensures that we do not solely rely on a computer/online process making a decision about a staff member, client or customer if the decision has a significant or legal effect on the individual. Our databases system will automatically give a percentage to a staff member if they have not shown up for a shift, this is do ensure LA has 

the most reliable staff booked in. This is also monitored by office staff and data protection/advisory staff, this is manually updated also to ensure compliance. (Manually updated on notes of failure to arrive for shifts, manually put on different emailing lists if failure to attend work, late to shifts, rudeness.) The commuter does not automatically measure these issues. The system will generate a report showing staff who continually decline shifts, fail to arrive on time for shifts, or fail to attend work all together. However it is down to office staff to determine their status.
