Please also note that this and all other employment background check, drug screening, driving record and state release authorization forms are available in a PDF format file to our Automated Employment ScreeningClients.
All of these FCRA compliant release documents may be e-mailed to the applicants and easily completed online.
If after sending out the pre-adverse documents required, the employer intends to make the decision final, the employer must take one more step.
Many employers find it difficult to believe that Congress intended that an applicant be notified twice, both before an adverse action and after.
However, the law clearly requires two notices.
This is also the interpretation of the Federal Trade Commission Staff. The purpose is to give job applicants the maximum opportunity to correct any incomplete or inaccurate reports that could affect their chances of employment.
The employer must send the applicant a Final Notice of Adverse Action informing the job applicant that the employer has made a final decision; along with another copy of the FTC form” “Summary of Your Rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act.”
The Notice of Adverse Action must contain certain information.
The following is a sample letter that contains an example of the necessary statements:
Final Notice Of Adverse Action (Must be on company Letterhead)
