WEBINAR DETAILS

Financial institutions are under increasing pressure to ensure the right candidate is hired. But remember, the “right” candidate not only has the desired skills and personality, but also meets the applicable security and bondability requirements.  In addition, there are significant legal risks surrounding the use of credit reports and other evaluation tools.

Pre-employment screening often involves using credit reports as an evaluation tool.  Unfortunately, many institutions fail to follow the Fair Credit Reporting Act’s (FCRA) basic compliance requirements, which include a very specific set of protections and notifications for applicants and serious ramifications for violations.  Are your internal policies and procedures up to the task?  This webinar will reveal the tangled web of rules and regulations surrounding the seemingly simple process of using credit reports and other evaluation tools in the employment process.
