A message to California employees,

Data privacy and security regulation is growing rapidly around the world, including in the United States. As of January 1, 2020, Avnet is required to comply with the newly adopted California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). CCPA establishes regulations regarding personal information that companies keep on an individual, whether by employment or through a consumer exchange. In relation to your employment, Avnet may keep the following categories of data on record:

Identifiers, Personal information categories listed in the California Consumer Records statute, Protected classification characteristics under California or federal law, and/or Professional or employment-related information

Examples: Avnet will use personal information “in relation to your employment,” such as real name, postal address, email address, social security number, state identification card number, education, age, race, citizenship, veteran status, current or past job history, performance evaluations, bank account number, health insurance information, etc., to comply with legal requirements, process payroll, as well as manage business operations, employee benefits, and employee performance.

Be assured that Avnet does not sell the personal information of its employees. Also, keep in mind that this area of law is continuing to change and we will update you as necessary.
