Personnel Concepts Launches FCRA Compliance Kit

Nov 7, 2012

ONTARIO, Calif.—Commencing Jan. 1, 2013, all employers conducting consumer background checks on job applicants or employees must issue a revised Summary of Consumer Rights to the affected individuals. To help employers comply with the new requirement, Personnel Concepts has issued a FCRA Compliance Kit.

FCRA refers to the Fair Credit Reporting Act, which previously was enforced by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). Since this enforcement authority will pass to the newly formed Consumer Financial Protection Board (CFPB), the summary had to be updated to reflect the new reality.

Failure to follow the FCRA in conducting background credit checks can result in fines of up to $2,500 per violation.

“Both the states and federal government are watching consumer credit checks and their use in employment decisions more closely than ever,” said Robert Leland, director of research for Personnel Concepts. “With our FCRA Compliance Kit, employers will be better able to navigate the tricky waters of compliance and keep legal action at bay.”
