Our clients often ask us how best to handle credit reports in employment decisions. Our response is “always handle with care!”
Credit reporting is an established and respected feature of our daily commerce and has been used successfully when conducting background checks on prospective employees for job-related purposes. However, the political and social tolerance for the use of credit reports has changed dramatically since the recession of 2008. And the question of job-relatedness is the most difficult question to address.
We know you have many questions on this subject. With that in mind, we have created this new White Paper which explores the use of credit in employment decisions, what information is returned in a credit report, recommendations on the proper use of credit reports going forward, and guidance to avoid litigation traps.
