  • As was more fully explained in our Client Alert of a few years ago, the Fair Credit Reporting Act ("FCRA") imposes strict notice and consent requirements on employers who use "consumer reports," which are defined to include almost any kind of background check, from outside "consumer reporting agencies" ("CRAs") in making employment related decisions. These obligations are even more demanding for "investigative consumer reports," which involve personal interviews with friends, neighbors, and associates.
