The California Consumer Privacy Act! How Does It Affect Employers?
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) goes into effect on January 1, 2020. The Act was first passed in 2018, so chances are you’ve heard and/or read about it for months now - and thought you’d heard enough.
We just wanted to call attention to how the CCPA may affect employers. The original text didn’t exempt employers who may collect information over the course of hiring and employing individuals. The legislators acknowledged, and to address the issue, AB 25 was approved and file in October 2019. AB 25 provides a one-year exemption from the CCPA for the collection of data about a person by a business if the information is used solely for the purposes of employment. What happens after the one-year exemption? That is currently not clear. We located this article, published by CPO Magazine, and it does a good job of outlining the CCPA. We also found a very informative guidance piece, published by Baker Hostetler, here.
