Notice of Collection of Personal Information for California Residents
To Applicants for Employment Positions or Independent Contractor Engagements
This Notice of Collection for California Residents explains how Quanta Services, Inc. and its affiliates (“Quanta”, “we” or “us”) collect and use your personal information when you submit it to us by website, email, paper, or other method to apply for employment with Quanta or for work as an independent contractor. Note that, in most cases, we will supplement the information you provide with other personal information from third parties we select, such as background check and driving record information providers, from third parties that you instruct or authorize to send information to us, and from publicly available information.
If you are a prospective employee, the categories of personal information listed below that we receive will be used to assess your suitability as a Quanta employee, to evaluate your qualifications for available or anticipated employment positions at Quanta, and for the purposes of complying with applicable laws. Unless you direct otherwise in writing, we may (but are not obligated to) retain the personal information you provide for up to two years and we may use that information to consider your eligibility for any available or anticipated employment positions at Quanta during that time.
If you are a prospective independent contractor, the categories of personal information listed below that we receive will be used to assess your suitability for available or anticipated engagements to perform work for Quanta as an independent contractor, and for the purposes of complying with applicable laws. Unless you direct otherwise in writing, we may (but are not obligated to) retain the personal information you provide for up to two years and we may use that information to consider your eligibility for any available or anticipated engagements to perform work for Quanta as an independent contractor during that time.
The categories of personal information we may collect and process (but only to the extent and in a manner that is consistent with applicable law) are as follows:
- Personal identifiers and demographics. Quanta collects personal identifiers (such as your name, contact information, Social Security number, driver’s license number, and passport number) and demographic information (such as your date of birth). Sensitive identifiers such as Social Security, passport, and driver’s license numbers should only be collected when there is a need for those identifiers (for example, to comply with immigration requirements or for the purposes of obtaining driving records or background checks).
- Job preference information. Quanta will receive the information you submit about your job preferences (such as the posting and description of the job to which you apply, your compensation expectations, and your preferred start date).
- Professional, employment, and education information. Quanta collects professional and employment-related information (such as information in your cover letter and resume/CV and a list of skills) and education information (such as certifications, license, academic transcripts, and confirmations of attendance at an educational institution).
- Health information. Quanta may receive health-related information from you that is relevant to your application, such as when you provide information about your ability to perform certain job functions, the need for accommodations, or a disability.
- Protected class information. Quanta may receive protected class information from you as defined by applicable law (such as race, gender, copies of citizenship and right to work information, and veteran status).
- Comments. Quanta receives any comments and messages you submit along with your job applications.
- Background check and public records information. With your permission, Quanta may receive information contained in background check reports and in public government records (such as work history, credit history, driving records, criminal records, and court records).
- Publicly available information. Quanta may review publicly available social media pages and other public Internet postings, to the extent permissible under applicable law.
- Signature Data. Quanta collects your signature and related authentication details in connection with any documents you electronically or physically sign and provide to Quanta. This information may be used to maintain the integrity of our processes, enforce rights, prevent fraud, and validate your identity.
In addition, we may automatically collect other categories of personal information when you use a Quanta website to submit your application to us. We use this information to provide and improve our website and job application processes, for anti-fraud purposes, and to create aggregate internal reports on website usage and activity, such as views of certain job postings. These additional categories may consist of:
- Online identifiers. Quanta may collect your IP address and other online identifiers when you use Quanta websites.
- Website activity information. Quanta may monitor and collect Quanta website activity information, such as website clicks, content and page views, and the website each visitor visited prior to our website.
