The California Privacy Protection Agency's ability to enforce its regulations has been restored after a court ruling. The Agency had previously been temporarily blocked from enforcement after adopting regulations in March 2023. The court ruled that there is no requirement for a one-year waiting period between adopting regulations and enforcement. This ruling allows the Agency to immediately begin enforcing the new regulations.
The Agency filed a petition for extraordinary writ relief, and on February 9, 2024, the Third District Court of Appeal restored the Agency's ability to enforce these new regulations.
The ruling came after the California Chamber of Commerce successfully obtained an injunction, arguing that businesses needed more time to comply with the new regulations. However, the court sided with the Agency, giving covered employers almost a full year to prepare for compliance. Now, all covered employers must ensure that they are in compliance with the revised regulations, which are now in effect.
The California Chamber of Commerce argued that a one-year gap between adoption and enforcement was required. The Court of Appeal sided with the Agency, finding no requirement for a one-year gap between adoption of the regulations and enforcement.
