Credit Report Check

Employers should only seek a credit report on a prospective employee or current employee when there is a clear relationship between credit information and job performance. Such as those employees that work in the accounting department, bank tellers, supervisors and managers that will deal with money and or handle company financial information.

If an employer decides that the company will undertake credit checks on its prospective employees or current employees than the employer is than required to do a credit check on every person within the job scope. This will eliminate any appearance  of discrimination.

Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, as an employer you are required to get a signed release from your prospective employee or current employee before a check is to be done, and you notify the prospective employee or current employee that a credit check will be done.
