In 2017, California updated its automatic renewal law to create some of the strictest requirements in the country. Now, just four years later, the Governor Newsom signed a new law that will impose even stricter requirements.
The revised law will replace the existing one and will go into effect on July 1, 2022. Companies will need to think about what changes they need to make to their programs to comply. This is an area that gets a lot of attention from regulators and class action attorneys, so the consequences of getting things wrong can be significant.
