“TR Information Services is dedicated to providing our clients with the most complete and current information available.” said Rhona Brody, Compliance Officer, TR Information Services. “This includes knowing the rules associated with reporting that information. The laws regarding what can and cannot be reported on a background check or pre-employment screening not only vary from state to state, but seem to be in an on-going state of change. Employers must hire a screening firm that knows these rules.”
Most employers will screen potential employees as part of the hiring process but they can also screen to facilitate a promotion and/or maintain employment. It is a given that these businesses need complete and concise information. However, if an employer utilizes a screening service that does not adhere to FCRA regulations - and a consumer’s rights are violated - then that employer can be subject to legal consequences, including civil law suits, large fines and criminal charges.
“TR Information Services has created a background check compliance page on their web site to better help assist our customers in complying with the FCRA” said Todd Mayers, Marketing Manager.
