Assembly Bill 25 (Chau) has unanimously passed the Assembly and clarifies that the definition of consumer under the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) does not apply to a consumer’s personal information that is collected and used solely within their role as an employee, or in similar roles within the employment context.

Specifically, the bill clarifies that the definition of "consumer" does not include a natural person whose personal information has been collected by a business in the course of a person acting as a job applicant to, an employee of, a contractor of, or an agent on behalf of, the business. The exemption only applies to the extent the information is collected and used solely within the context of the person's role as a job applicant to, an employee of, a contractor of, or an agent on behalf of, the business.
