The U.S.’s state-by-state privacy regulation approach is creating jobs—and inefficiency.

TOP 3 Unforeseen Effects Of Increased State (Rather Than Federal) Privacy Regulation On The Privacy Job Market
  • Outside counsel will hyperextend their Data Privacy practice hiring to service the needs of corporations who cannot or do not want to keep up with privacy regulations in-house.
  • Contract staffing for privacy lawyers will balloon until federal legislation levels the playing field.
  • If and when Federal legislation does pass, the need for privacy pros may decrease due to the growing inflation of demand corporations face to stay compliant in all fifty states as well as abroad.

Contract opportunities will surge in November and December as FTEs take vacation or maternity/paternity and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) comes into effect!

TOP 3 Busiest Times for Contract Opportunities
  • Landmark legislation: When big law (CCPA, GDPR, FRCP) comes closer to taking effect, companies bolster their teams with contractors to prepare and catch up.
  • Leave: Whether it’s extended vacation or celebrating the birth of a new family member, when full time employees take time off, hiring managers augment with temporary resources.
  • Large Projects: When big cases demand bigger and potentially more sophisticated teams, contractors become the solution to fill the talent gaps.
