Notice to Covered Individuals

The California legislature has adopted various laws to safeguard the privacy of the residents of California, the latest of which is the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (the “CCPA”). The CCPA was enacted to give consumers certain rights with respect to their personal information collected by businesses, including the right to know what personal information is being collected about them.

In the context of an employment or consultant relationship, the CCPA requires a business to inform covered individuals of the categories of personal information collected and the purposes for which those categories of personal information are used. For purposes of the CCPA, a “covered individual” is natural person who is acting as a job applicant to, an employee of, owner of, director of, officer of, or contractor of a business.
