CA Gov't Code Section 7299.5

The Department of Human Resources may exempt state agencies from the requirements of Section 7299.4, where it determines that any of the following conditions apply:


The agency’s primary mission does not include responsibility for furnishing information or rendering services to the public.


The agency has consistently received such limited public contact with the non-English-speaking public that it has not been required to employ bilingual staff under Section 7292 and the agency employs fewer than the equivalent of 25 full-time employees in public contact positions. In order to receive an exemption, each state agency shall petition the Department of Human Resources for the exemption and receive approval in writing by the date established by the department. An agency may receive an exemption for up to five survey cycles, if it demonstrates that it meets the requirements of subdivision (a) or (b), and provides all required documentation to the Department of Human Resources.
