By the time the California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA) goes into effect on January 1, 2023, employers doing business in California will be required to implement a broad privacy and information security compliance program for the personal information of employees, independent contractors, and job applicants who reside in California. The Littler CPRA Podcast Series is designed to help covered employers attain a basic understanding of their compliance obligations. This series also will examine upcoming issues and provide practical guidance to help covered employers understand the CPRA’s implications for their organization. The purpose of Littler's podcasts is to provide helpful information for employers, addressing the latest developments in labor and employment relations. They are not a substitute for experienced legal counsel and do not provide legal advice or attempt to address the numerous factual issues that arise in any employment-related issue.
