Actually, not quite. The banks only have to ensure sensitive client data is not accessed by anyone not being an employee.

That's why having an account at the bank you work at is never a good idea.
Actually, by anyone who doesn't need access to that data as part of their job and then according to controlled and audited procedures. For client data, it is not restricted to sensitive data but to any data that could lead to identification of a living person (if you're dead you lose your right to privacy).

Also, most banks would insist that employees have accounts only with them to avoid conflict of interest - I certainly know 1 of the big 2 does this. Therefore, and this is the good bit, employees are also clients and get the extra protection the banking secrecy laws afford over the data protection legislation.
