Employees? Pfft! What are they good for? Oh, right. California has enacted a new sweeping privacy law. So, how does the California Consumer Privacy Act applies to employees?
CCPA and Employees
How do you address this scenario as a business owner? The unfortunate reality is you’ll need to evaluate your workforce to determine which employees are natural residents of California. Once you’ve created that category, the general rules of the California Consumer Privacy Act will apply to the collection, storage, and use of that data. Sound like a bit of a nightmare? It is. I’m expecting the California Legislature to amend the law to provide clarity on company obligations when addressing employee personal information. I’ll post a video when the amendment is enacted.
Does the California Consumer Privacy Act apply to employees? Yes. Is the scope of that application clear? Not entirely.
