CCPA is the California Consumer Privacy Act. It goes into effect as of January 1, 2020, and its purpose is to protect the personal information of California residents (“consumers”). CCPA places requirements on some businesses for collecting, sharing, or selling personal information.
Workable provides features to help you share your privacy notice with candidates. Note: For these features to be applied to a job, the job's location must be within California.
To enable CCPA features:
- Click your user icon to navigate to Settings, then Compliance
- Locate the CCPA section and enable the switch
- A box will appear where you can add a link to your company's privacy notice. If you are using Language kit, you can add links to translated versions for each of your supported languages, if needed.
- After adding the link(s), click Save Changes.
When the job location is in California, the link you saved will be included at all key touch points with candidates. This includes your Workable careers page and application forms, application confirmation emails, and other candidate-facing pages. The link can be found in the footer of these pages.
If a candidate was uploaded to your account and may not have seen your privacy notice, then a text footer will appear in the email editor when sending the candidate an email or event for the first time. This text is editable as needed and only appears the first time an email or event is sent to the candidate.
