All background screening agencies and employers conducting pre-employment screening must comply with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA).  Under the requirements of the FCRA, written permission must be obtained by the user of background screening reports prior to obtaining the reports.  In addition, the information used for pre-employment screening purposes must be accurate and up-to-date.  National Credit Reporting can assist you in packaging products to best meet these requirements.

In addition, the FCRA sets forth applicant notification and authorization standards for pre-employment background screening.  All applicants must be provided advance notice, in writing and separate from the application, that background screening will be conducted prior to employment.  All applicants must sign an authorization for the release of information prior to the background screening.  In addition, there are a number of documents that must be provided to the applicant with regard to the reports being requested, disputed information, adverse actions, and more. 

For detailed information and documentation regarding background screening regulations and compliance you may find the following links helpful.  For your convenience, National Credit Reporting can provide you with the release and notification forms required.  However, National Credit Reporting does not provide legal advice and recommends you consult with your attorney with regard to any legal or compliance matters.
