What Employer’s Need to Know about the FCRA

Background CheckEmployers should be aware and understand their requirements under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) before requesting and obtaining consumer reports. The name of the act “FCRA” is a misinterpretation. The word “Credit” in FCRA should be replaced with “Consumer” to accurately portray the language in the act. “Consumers” are individuals, better known to employers as employees and applicants. The FCRA was originally enacted to allow fair and accurate consumer reports to the banking system but later included language to cover other reasons such as employment and tenant screening. The FCRA limits negative information that can be reported based on the date of the offense and salary of the employee. Criminal cases ending in convictions (guilty cases) have no limit on how long they can be reported. Non-conviction criminal cases (dismissals, acquittals, etc.) are reportable within 7 years of the offense unless the applicant is expected to make less than $75K...
