Introduction from the Editor
In this edition of our monthly e-newsletter, we discuss a civil complaint that was filed against a nationwide leading Credit Reporting Agency (CRA) for violating both Federal and State law by furnishing information to retailers about criminal cases involving suspicion of theft or fraud that did not result in a conviction.
Did you know that The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) recently provided tips on the use of employment background checks? Earlier this month both agencies co-published two documents explaining how the agencies respective laws apply to background checks conducted for employment purposes.
Finally, with our tip of the month we address the question that so many employers have, �Why is it a good idea to do background checks?"
Please forward our e-newsletter to friends and colleagues who may benefit from our published information.
