Ca Legislature Passes Bill Extending Exemptions under the CCPA for Employee, B2B Information

As the 2020 legislative session drew to a close, California lawmakers passed AB 1281 (Chau), a bill temporarily extending a pair of exemptions from the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), on votes of 39-0 and 75-0.

Assembly Bill 1281, which was supported by a coalition of industry groups including the California Land Title Association, extends through January 1, 2022, the sunset dates on exemptions in the CCPA for personal information collected in the context of an individual acting as an employee, or in connection with business transactions and communications. In order to avoid a conflict with the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA), a measure on the November 2020 ballot seeking to significantly modify the CCPA and which would remove the exemptions altogether, AB 1281 would only go into effect if the CPRA were to fail passage.

The bill now heads to the Governor for his consideration.
