PreHire Screening Services is a Consumer Reporting Agency (CRA), as defined by the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). Our employee background check consumer reports are compliant with the FCRA, CFPB, EEOC, ADA and DOT. Please remember that as an employer, if you utilize a consumer report or investigative consumer report as part of your pre-employment screening and hiring process, you have responsibilities to ensure that the reports obtained from PreHire Screening are used in compliance with certain regulations.
To assist you in staying up-to-date with the latest compliance requirements, we have provided the following information. Although we update this section regularly, please be sure to let us know if you discover any out-of-date information or broken links. Also, if you know of any useful links that would benefit our clients, feel free to contact us so we can add them to this page.
As always, if you have any questions or are unsure about your obligations as it relates to the use of consumer reports provided by PreHire Screening, please be sure to contact us. It’s better to be safe than to find out later that a violation has occurred.
