Does the COVID-19 crisis have any implications under the CCPA for employers?
The California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA) currently requires certain employers to provide job applicants, new hires, and current employees with a notice stating the categories of personal information collected and the business purposes for which that personal information will be used. If employers begin to collect medical information such as customer or employee temperature or COVID-19 testing results, employers may need to modify and/or issue new notices identifying medical information as a category. CCPA notices should be provided at or before the collection of personal information.
