Last week, California Governor Gavin Newsom signed into law two amendments to the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) that would impact various CCPA exemptions. One amendment, A.B. 1281 would extend two exemptions that were set to expire later this year: the employee exemption and the business (B2B) exemption. Both of these exemptions will now remain in effect until at least January 1, 2022. The other amendment, A.B. 713, would clarify the exemption relating to de-identified personal information. This amendment went into immediate effect and imposing additional disclosure requirements and contract restrictions on the sale or disclosure of such information by businesses subject to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), California’s Confidentiality of Medical Information Act (CMIA), and other laws relating to medical privacy and human subject research.
