1/4/2011 California Consumer Privacy Law Takes Effect


A reminder that as of January 1, 2011, California SB 909 requires background screening firms to be upfront about off-shoring personally identifiable consumer data. Please note that EmployeeScreenIQ DOES NOT off-shore any of our data and that all work is conducted in the United States.

The bill also requires employers that use investigative consumer reports for employment purposes to provide the subject of the report with the web address or telephone number of the investigative consumer reporting agency where they may find additional information about the agency’s privacy practices.
