The CCPA applies to personal information held about “consumers” – a term which is defined as referring to any resident of California.1 As a result, if a business is governed by the CCPA, the rights conferred by the statute – including the right to receive a privacy notice -- apply to any job applicants about whom the business collects personal information that are California residents.
