Employers use credit and criminal background checks to make informed hiring and other employment decisions, but must comply with a myriad of legal restrictions in doing so. Our attorneys help clients navigate the restrictions on and risks to using background checks, including compliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). If Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or Federal Trade Commission (FTC) enforcement or private litigation results from an employer’s use of a background check, our litigators are prepared to mount a defense.
