Submission + - SPAM: Will your credit report disqualify you for a job?

coondoggie writes: "Two companies that fired workers and rejected job applicants based on background checks without informing those people of their rights have settled with the Federal Trade Commission for $77,000 in civil penalties. The companies — Quality Terminal Services and Rail Terminal Services — were charged with violating provisions oaf the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) which requires employers to get permission to look at individual credit reports. If you don't get a job because of information in your report, the employer must show you the report and tell you how to get a copy from the consumer reporting company. There is no charge for the report if you request it within 60 days of getting notice that you did not get a job. most experts think this case is just the tip of the iceberg though.
