    If they consent to it, sure.

    Companies have ZERO right to check a persons credit history!!!
    Without your permission, I agree. But if you want the job, they have the right to lay the ground rules on how you can obtain it. They should be fully free to filter prospective employees however they wish. Just as job seekers are perfectly free to filter prospective employers how they see fit.

    I disagree, but hey.. that's life.

    Or how about this? Instead of having the annual income of managers and executives be made available to employees they are instead made available to anyone who owns a share in the company? After all, it's the shareholders' money they are spending.
    Sure, why not?

You don't know why an individual was late on their payments.
    Again, I disagree. It tells you everything. If that person has honor, integrity, makes paying their debt a priority, or is a deadbeat.

    Good point. I don't care but it's an interesting question.

    Really? What about religion? They have the right to check THAT? No! And for a great reason. Same with credit.
    Companies should have NO right to even ASK for consent for ANY personal information. All they need is you being at the interview(s). Period.

    If you do the job, great! If not, you get canned.

    Well, I disagree. I think they should be able to hire based on any criteria they wish. And yes, that includes religion. To your employer, you are an investment. They should be allowed to gather as much info about that investment as they wish and make their decision based on whatever criteria they find important to their company.

    They can go online then. Hey... you look like a muslim or a indian or something in your avatar... we arent going to hire your type of freaks.

    Your father seems to have had alcohol problems. So has your grandmother. Too risky
    Although you drove a nice car to work, you have owned to many crappy cars. That tells us you havent achieved enough in a certain peroid of time. You dont have enough drive
    Also you mother was overweight. You probably will be too according to our statistics. That will raise our health insurance premiums plus they tend to take too many days off.

    NO JOB FOR YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    AH! Youre RIGHT! BUUUUUUT..... all the other companies that are interested in you also have the same company that does background checks. OH!!!! And youre also unemployeed.

    All the "good" companies do a VERY through background check. Maybe you can sell vaccum cleaners door to door?

    LMFAO If all the "good" companies do that, then all of the "good" companies don't have very many employees, which means they're not going to be "good" companies any longer. Not to mention the seriously bad PR that's going to be going on. All the boycotting and whatnot.

    In this day and age, the free market takes care of that ****.
