The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA)

Background screening is not simply checking someone’s background on the web, and moving on. When conducting a background check, VeriFirst complies strictly with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) which regulates the process of tenant and employee background checks.  The  FCRA places limits and rules on the usage of consumer reports by both employers and landlords. As such the following duties must be carried out when you are making use of a personal consumer report:

  • A permissible purpose must be present to review someone's personal consumer report

  • There must be a specific purpose and usage of the consumer report and that report cannot be used for any other reason other than the ones stated

  • The consumer must be notified in cases of adverse action

  • If alerts are present in the consumer account, further verification is required to ensure the information is correct

  • All information must be disposed of properly according to required regulations
