Helpful Resources

We’ve compiled a list of helpful resources that can provide additional support in the background screening process. Learn more here & contact us today.

FCRA for Employers

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is the Federal agency enforcing the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). They have developed a variety of resources for employers to understand the FCRA and ensure they develop legally-compliant background screening programs. You can learn more about the FCRA and monitor updates on their website.

FCRA for Consumers

The FCRA governs the accuracy, fairness, and privacy of information in the files of consumer reporting agencies. Under the FCRA, consumers have rights that are protected when a consumer reporting agency gathers data about them. To learn more about the protections, visit this Summary of Your Rights Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act. 

Professional Background Screening Association

Screen Corps is a Professional Background Screening Association (PBSA) member. The PBSA provides training for Screen Corps employees and monitors changes in Federal and state laws that impact background screening and companies like yours. They have developed an overview of our industry and have resources that may be helpful. 

Society for Human Resource Management

The Society for Human Resource Management is a national trade association that educates and provides tools for Human Resource leaders. They have developed a Checklist for employers to ensure they comply with the FCRA. It can be helpful as you work to create a compliant background screening program.
