A new amendment to the California Consumer Privacy Act puts more time back on the clock for companies that are still struggling to bring their handling of employee or business-to-business data into compliance with the law. But are employers really unprepared to comply or just dragging their feet?

When the CCPA originally went into effect Jan. 1, 2020, a yearlong exemption was granted for individual rights requests pertaining to employee or job applicant data collected by businesses. Passed last week, the AB-1281 amendment prolongs the life of those exemptions until Jan. 1, 2022, which potentially gives companies more time to put the requisite mechanisms and protections in place to satisfy regulators.
