Fair Credit Reporting Act Disclosure & Authorization


In considering you as an applicant for employment or as a current employee, we may choose to secure and use information contained in either a consumer report or investigative consumer report about you obtained from a consumer reporting agency when: (1) considering your application for employment (2) making a decision whether to offer you employment, (3) deciding whether to continue your employment or (4) making other employment-related decisions directly affecting you.

For explanation purposes, a "consumer reporting agency" is a person or business that, on a cooperative nonprofit basis, or for monetary fees or dues, regularly assembles or evaluates consumer credit information or other information on consumers for a person who has a legitimate business need for the information or intends to use the information for employment purposes.

A "consumer report" means any written, oral or other communication of any information by a consumer reporting agency bearing on your credit worthiness, credit standing, credit capacity, character, general reputation, personal characteristics, or mode of living which is used or expected to be used or collected in whole or in part for the purpose of serving as a factor in establishing your eligibility for employment purposes.

An "investigative consumer report" means a consumer report or portion thereof in which information on your character, general reputation, personal characteristics, or mode of living is obtained through personal interviews with your neighbors, friends, or associates reported on or with others with whom you are acquainted or who may have knowledge concerning any such items of information.

In the event an investigative consumer report is prepared, you may request additional disclosures regarding the nature and scope of the investigation requested as well as a written summary of your rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act.


By submitting an application, you hereby authorize us to obtain a consumer report and/or an investigative report about you in order to consider you for employment. If hired, this authorization shall remain on file and shall serve as an ongoing authorization for us to procure consumer reports at any time during the employment period.

The federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) promotes the accuracy, fairness, and privacy of

check writing histories, medical records, and rental history records). Here is a summary of your major
