California Privacy Rights Act: Understanding Your HR Compliance Obligations
Jessica Clark and Lindley Fraley, CGL LLP
About this talk
Effective January 1, 2023, California became the first state to provide expansive privacy rights to employees. The new rights go well beyond existing rights of employees under the California Labor Code and apply not just to current employees but also to former employees, job applicants, and independent contractors. Businesses outside the state also need to pay attention if they have California-based remote workers or job applicants. Join us for an overview of the new requirements in relation to HR data and an in-depth discussion of what this change will mean for businesses.
Join Jessica Clark and Lindley Fraley and walk away with actionable insights to these pressing questions:

How should businesses balance employee rights with conflicting obligations to protect privilege, trade secrets, and another person’s privacy?
How can businesses prepare for misuse of CPRA rights as a pre-litigation discovery mechanism?
