All Employment Background Checks Are Not The Same

As a Human Resources professional, you already know that you must stay compliant with all Federal and State employment laws including the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). But did you know that not all criminal background checks being offered in the marketplace as employment screening tools are FCRA compliant? According to the FTC, background checks that rely only on databases compiled from "stored data" in public criminal records are not compliant and should not be used for hiring purposes.

ERS's employment background checks are FCRA compliant. All records are current as of the date searched and traceable to the source of origination.
