Employer Notes: If you are considering obtaining applicant or employee background checks through a third party provider, it is vitally important that you comply with the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). Background checks typically include a variety of information from various sources, including credit reports. The FCRA imposes a number of requirements on employers who obtain and utilize background checks, including a number of
very specific notice and disclosure requirements, which are not reflected in this sample employment application.
Please note that your state may also have very specific requirements for conducting background checks. Some states limit or restrict the use of information gained through background checks, including arrest and conviction records as well as credit reports. Employers are strongly advised to consult a knowledgeable employment law attorney before conducting any type of background checks on applicants or current employees.
