California Governor Gavin Newsom has signed several amendments to the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018. Issues range from the timing of employer disclosure requirements to data gathered and used in consumer identity verification, vehicle recalls and warranties, consumer credit checks, and business due diligence work.
