Employers today stand between a rock and a hard place. Not screening candidates places organizations at risk of negligent hiring liability. At the same time, screening practices that violate even minor technicalities of the Federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and individual states’ counterpart legislation guidelines place employers at risk of class action litigation. The truth is, FCRA compliance is not all that complicated. Follow a few basic rules and stay out of court.
