This is a primer on the recently established California Privacy Rights Act, and what employers must do to remain compliant with this new legislation. As a business, you are not only required to comply with data privacy law in your interactions with consumers, but also when managing California-based job candidates as well as California-based current and former employees of your company.
When reviewing this tutorial, remember that the ‘consumer’ and the ‘employee’ can be interchangeable terms. For example, where it says ‘its purpose is to protect the personal information of California residents (“consumers”)’, it is equally applicable to read this as ‘its purpose is to protect the personal information of California residents (“employees”).’”
CPRA is the California Privacy Rights Act. It went into effect as of January 1, 2023, and its purpose is to protect the personal information of California residents (“consumers”). CPRA places requirements on businesses for collecting, sharing, or selling personal information.
