California Senate Proposes Bill to Extend Certain CCPA Exemptions
At present, the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) has “temporary” (and limited) exemptions for the application of portions of the CCPA to personal data collected in the course of business-to-business transactions (Section 1798.145(o)) and that of employees and job applicants (Section 1798.145(h). Both sections will sunset on January 1, 2021 without further action from the Legislature. AB 1281 has been amended in the Senate to extend these exemptions until January 1, 2022. We will continue to follow this bill as it moves through the Senate.
