Business records exception California is a state that prohibits the use of personal information that you have disclosed in the course of employment. The State is currently investigating whether to change this rule.
California has a variety of laws that cover this area and have different standards for what information is and is not protected. For instance, a couple of years ago the State tried to introduce a “best practices” amendment to its laws that would have banned any “offering of employment or referral of persons for the purpose of soliciting employees.” This amendment would have made it illegal for any employer to ask you for your social security number. The problem with this amendment was that it was too restrictive.
This is also something that has come up in various states where it’s been tried that, if a job seeker goes through a recruiter, there is no legal way to provide information about the business they are seeking. However, if they go through a recruiter that isn’t the company itself, then they are still legally allowed to provide the business name, phone number, and email address.
This law has been challenged in the past, and several courts have ruled that people are legally allowed to provide this information. As a result, employers often provide their social security numbers to job seekers. Some states have gone a step further and require that job seekers provide their social security numbers to all the companies they apply with. However, that is not always the case.
There are even some states that have gone as far as to require that job seekers provide their social security numbers to all the companies they apply with. However, that is not always the case. As a result of this challenge, one California employer who provided his social security info to an individual who had applied for a job with another California company has had his application rejected. He has sued the California employer, and the California attorney general is considering the case.
The man in question is Michael F. Smith, an engineer who works for a company called Smith Construction, which has a state-wide contract with the State of California to provide state, county, and municipal buildings. At the time of the denial of his application, Michael had already filed a lawsuit against Smith Construction in Los Angeles Superior Court, which is currently ongoing.
The California attorney general decided to start investigating the allegations that Smith was trying to hide a massive fraud. However, the California courts can still decide whether or not Michael is entitled to compensation.
This story, however, is not a big deal. As the California Attorney General stated in a press release: “A contractor may not use the state records exception to cover up his or her illegal actions.” The only thing that has been settled is that Michael will be receiving $1,500 for each violation of the state contract. That’s not the end of it, however, which is a good thing.
Its always good to hear that some of the state’s laws are being challenged. The California Attorney General stated in a press release that they will be pursuing claims on the grounds that the contractor did not follow the terms of the contract. This lawsuit is really nothing more than a request by the Attorney General to the contractor to pay for the violation of the contract. The company does have a duty to pay for the violation of the contract, and they have a duty to pay their employees for their actions.
