Conduct background checks? Use new FCRA form

by on
in Employment Background Check,Human Resources

Starting Jan. 13, 2013, employers that obtain background checks from consumer reporting agencies must give applicants and employees a new, updated version of the Summary of Rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) form.

The FCRA requires employers to give people a copy of this form if the employer plans to take action—such as not hiring the applicant—based on information in the credit report.

Find more advice on using credit reports, plus a copy of the form, by reading "Conducting background checks on job candidates? Know how to comply with the FCRA."
