Recent amendments to the Fair Credit Reporting Act

As an employee or job seeker, you may be concerned about the type of information that future employers can find out about you from the use of background checks. While it is possible for employers to be able to access such information, there are laws in place to limit how and when third parties can access this type of information about you.

Does my future employer have a right to my information?

When you are applying for a new job, it is quite possible that your potential employer will want to know a lot about you as a person. They will want to know your previous working experience and they may also be interested in what your interests are outside of work in order to get a picture of who you are.

Can my employer conduct a background check on me?

There have long been issues surrounding to what extent employers and potential employers should be able to look into the background of their employees. The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) puts forward many protections in this regard, preventing employers from conducting background checks without certain conditions from being present.

Are employment background checks legal?

When you are applying for a job, you will take a good amount of time to prepare your resume, and you will want to make sure that you are presenting the best possible version of yourself. If you move to the interview stage of the application process, you probably thought a lot about what to wear, and how to talk about yourself so that you make a great impression.

Your rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act

Have you found that there are significant errors in your credit report, affecting your ability to get a personal loan, student loan or mortgage? This is an overwhelming situation because you may not even know where to begin to resolve this type of complicated issue, but it is not something that you have to face alone.
