Federal law says that public documents cannot be used to discriminate against people when it comes to employment, housing, insurance costs, or offering people credit.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 27, 2014
DMV.us.org is starting a major push to ensure that consumers don't take advantage of their public records driving history reports to violate federal anti-discrimination laws, the company said yesterday.
“The information we provide people is in the public domain,” a DMV.us.org spokesman said. “But that doesn't mean there aren't limits on how people can use the information. There are, and we don't want consumers to accidentally violate those laws or use our system to intentionally cross the legal line.”
Federal law says that public documents cannot be used to discriminate against people when it comes to employment, housing, insurance costs, or offering people credit, he said.
“The first part of our effort will be explaining the law in clear terms on our site in multiple places,” he said. “We believe that most people don't want to break the law, and these warnings will help them not make a mistake.”
The second phase of the effort involves software that can notice red flags when people are more likely than not trying to use the site to violate anti-discrimination laws, he said.
“When the software notices these red flags, the search will be put on hold until the consumer contacts us,” he said. “Then our customer service staff will not process the search request until the consumer explains – in a plausible way – that they do not intend to violate discrimination laws.”
