Troutman Pepper Insights: CCPA/CPRA Will Apply to Employee AND B2B Data — Five Steps to Prepare for the January 1, 2023 Effective Date

On August 31, California’s legislature ended its 2022 session without adopting legislation to extend the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) employee and business-to-business (B2B) personal information exemptions. In the absence of a special legislative session, these exemptions will expire on January 1, 2023.

Under the current exemptions, covered businesses do not have to comply with certain requirements (e.g., consumer rights, such as access and deletion) when processing personal information collected in the employment or B2B context. First adopted in October 2019 after California’s Governor Gavin Newsom (D) signed AB 25 into law, these exemptions originally were set to expire on January 1, 2021. On September 29, 2020, AB 1281 was signed into law, providing a one-year extension applicable only in the event that the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA) ballot initiative failed. When the CPRA was adopted during the 2020 elections, the exemption was extended one final time to January 1, 2023.
