This is a snippet of what the government says about background checks in this country. The only information that truly matters. Whenever I research something that has to do with my rights as an American, it must be from a .gov website, whether it's for my state or for the entire country. Many of us do not know our rights, but we have many in this country.... Have a great day.....

Background Checks: What Employers Need to Know FTC When taking an adverse action (for example, not hiring an applicant or firing an employee) based on background information obtained through a company in the business of compiling background information, the FCRA has additional requirements: Before you take an adverse employment action, you must give the applicant or employee: a notice that includes a copy of the consumer report you relied on to make your decision; and a copy of "A Summary of Your Rights Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act," which you should have received from the company that sold you the report. By giving the person the notice in advance, the person has an opportunity to review the report and explain any negative information. After you take an adverse employment action, you must tell the applicant or employee (orally, in writing, or electronically): that he or she was rejected because of information in the report; the name, address, and phone number of the company that sold the report; that the company selling the report didn't make the hiring decision, and can't give specific reasons for it; and that he or she has a right to dispute the accuracy or completeness of the report, and to get an additional free report from the reporting company within 60 days. https://www.eeoc.gov/laws/guidance/background-checks-what-employers-need-know #rights #background #credit #criminal #human
