This is the worst kind of discrimination. The kind against ME! ~ Bender
You can see the Fair Credit Reporting Act would be hard to enforce re running credit checks on potential employees.Users of the information for credit, insurance, or employment purposes (including background checks) have the following responsibilities under the FCRA:
They must notify the consumer when an adverse action is taken on the basis of such reports.
Users must identify the company that provided the report, so that the accuracy and completeness of the report may be verified or contested by the consumer.
Thank you, Quazi!
Another easy way around these laws is to just outsource the checking. There are numerous companies not subject to USA jurisdiction that handle this function. All the USA based companies see is a list of candidates that meet their requirements. They don't even know if anyone was excluded from the list or reasons for any exclusions.You can see the Fair Credit Reporting Act would be hard to enforce re running credit checks on potential employees.
I'll bet that the people who are complaining loudest are the ones with bad credit scores.
For those who do worship the I-love-debt score, every credit check penalizes the score, and every check will appear on your report, so you can prove a damage.
As I don't borrow money, I have a bad score. Forget the fact that I do maintain a positive balance on my utilities, rent, insurance and child support.
I bet the people who complain the loudest are responsible people like myself who are deemed inferior just because we don't regularly borrow money.
That said however, I misspoke. We do not do the checks, ourself. For USA based employees, we give the position requirements to a couple of offshore companies. Those requirements always include extreme honesty and trustworthness. We get a list of folks that meet those requirements. So far, these two companies have not disappointed us.
People who have served their sentence should be allowed to rejoin society and function as productive citizens. If they can't get jobs, how the Hell are they supposed to do that?
I've got a simple solution for business afraid of hiring someone with a theft conviction because they might steal again. If someone gets caught a second time, shoot them. It will cut down on the problem drastically.
