Notice to Applicant/Employee Regarding Consumer Rights
Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act
The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) governs the activities of consumer credit reporting agencies, as well as the users of the information procured from these agencies. A consumer report contains information on a consumer's (job applicant's) character, reputation, and other personal data. Employers to screen job applicants procure these reports. Employer agrees to comply with all aspects of the Fair Credit Reporting Act and any applicable Federal or State equal employment opportunity law or regulation.
Among other things, the FCRA prohibits Users (Employers) from obtaining consumer reports unless the Employer discloses to the applicant, in writing, (The "REQUEST, AUTHORIZATION, CONSENT AND RELEASE FOR BACKGROUND INFORMATION" form) that such a report may be acquired. This disclosure must be in the form of a document that consists solely of the disclosure that a consumer report may be obtained for employment purposes. This release must also state that if the employer denies employment based on the information from an AGENT report, the applicant may make written inquiry requesting a disclosure of the nature and scope of the investigation.
If an applicant makes such a request, AGENT will supply a complete and accurate disclosure of the nature and scope of the investigation within five days of the request. AGENT will reexamine any item the applicant holds to be incorrect at no additional charge and, if necessary, supply a corrected report to the original requester. AGENT keeps copies of each investigation for a period of not less than one year.
If a consumer reporting agency or user of such information willfully fails to comply with and FCRA requirements, the Consumer Reporting Agency and its agents are responsible to the subject of the report. AGENT complies with all the regulations set forth by the FCRA.
In addition, any individual who knowingly and willfully obtains information from a consumer reporting agency under false pretenses will be fined not more than $5000.00 and imprisoned not more than one year or both.
AGENT complies with and supports all provisions of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). We urge all employers to review its restrictions and requirements. The Act's citation is Public Law 91-508, Title 15, U.S.C. Sections 1681, et seq. Please note, particularly, the Permissible Purposes of Reports, as well as requirements on Users of Consumer Reports and Obtaining Information Under False Pretenses.
I have read this release and consent form and understand all of its terms. I execute it voluntarily and with full knowledge of its significance.
