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 that 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 these features, click the 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. After adding the link, click Save Changes. That's it!
For jobs where the 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 text will appear in the email editor when sending the candidate an email for the first time (or in the event description if first contact is through an event). This text is editable as needed and only appears the first time an email is sent to the candidate.
