If you are having a third party agency perform background checks on potential new hires, that process generally is subject to the Federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), even if the check does not involve the applicant’s credit. The process involves a number of required forms, one of which is “A Summary of Your Rights Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act.” The Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection has released a new version of that form. If you are having a third party agency perform backgrounds checks and need a copy of the new form, we would be happy to forward it to you.
