FCRA Compliance

The FCRA guarantees certain rights for individuals affected by background screening reports. Know your rights!

Compliance is an integral part of an employer's Risk Management.

Pre-Adverse Action Notification

FCRA rules dictate that when an applicant's background screening returns undesirable results, a Pre-Adverse Action Notification must be sent, in writing, to the applicant before adverse action is actually taken. It informs the applicant that their application is about to be denied based on information discovered during the background screening process.

Adverse Action Notification

If, after a reasonable amount of time, (usually 5 business days), the applicant has not disputed the results of the background screening supplied via the Pre-Adverse Action Notification, the employer must proceed with the Adverse Action Notification, notifying the applicant, in writing, that the application for employment has been denied.
