More on employers’ use of credit reports July 4, 2013

Employers across the country are now using credit reports to as a part of their hiring procedures. Use of credit reports in the application process is becoming a standard practice. Even employers outside of the financial industry are using credit reports as a screening tool.  Using credit reports as a screening tool can have legal consequences. Ten states have  enacted protections for applicants and employees against the use of credit reports as a employment screening tool. Should your prospective employer be allowed access to your credit report and deny you a job? Should your current employer be allowed access to review your credit report and terminate you? Should employees have some protection against these practices? This show will investigate these questions and more. We are joined by Pittsburgh employment law attorney Charles A. Lamberton and industry expert Jay Meschke. Click the picture to download the podcast or click here to stream.
