That may be a great point to convey up. I supply the ideas above as general inspiration however clearly there are questions like the one you deliver up where an important thing shall be working in sincere good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, however I’m sure that your job is clearly recognized as a good game. Both girls and boys feel the impact of only a second’s pleasure, for the remainder of their lives.

This is wonderful initiative. Many folks with great credit have bad character and vice versa.

Years ago, folks could make investment mistakes or become ill or have a house fire or what have you and it was not the end of their credit worthiness but a life experience that can actually build good character,and better knowledge base…

now the rich rule our nation with an iron rod of a million and one forms of debters’ prisons– we all know the uber class has such wonderful moral values.

Oh now that is just playing on sterotypes isn’t it? Is that to say BoA is racist and purposely did credit checks to exclude more African-Americans than whites? How did BoA know what the reports results would be? But well I guess we still gotta throw race in there somewhere.

We are owned collectively by our customers… no stockholders public or private. As such our primary motivation as a company is to serve our community’s needs… not to maximize our profits or even our growth. The reason we can and do perform background checks on our new hirers is that we need to make sure we hire responsible people. If you don’t pay your bills we can’t have you processing other peoples bills. If you’ve got a coupld DUI’s on your personal driving record I doubt a trucking company wants you manning one of their 80,000 pound 18 wheelers. In my state someone with over 20 moving violations on their licence plowed into a young mother’s car and killed her about 10 years ago. It was on the basis of that incident that my state passed a law to check the driving records of ALL licenced truckers.

@TGGP. I am not a lawyer either but I can tell you exactly why Cali’s proposed law won’t stand up. The first ammendment; it’s a free speech issue. Remember you do not HAVE to allow a company to check your credit or your driving record. You’re granting them permission in writing when you apply. Pass a law making that illegal and you just denied me my right to demonstrate to a prospective employer that I am a highly ethical and dependable person making it harder for me to differentiate myself from other applicants.

Can you cite any example of similar laws being ruled unconstitutional?

ChrisMaresca, he said “If I’m an employer”, so it’s entirely possible he is not an employer and was just speaking hypothetically. Also, again I reiterate my suggestion that people who think these companies are just incompetent have a big profit opportunity. But I don’t expect anyone to try to take advantage of that opportunity, because I don’t think ANY OF YOU REALLY BELIEVE that the information you want to ban is COMPLETELY UNINFORMATIVE.

You’re not going to? Yeah, didn’t think so. Might say too much about your company’s attitude towards it’s customers.

And majkmushrm is right, HR is just lazy and generally incompetent. Between this, checkbox requirements and computerized candidate systems, they devised a perfect way to avoid taking any responsibility for a bad hire. It also explains why unemployment is so high….

If I’m an employer I have every right to your credit history, your driving history, and in many cases I can test your urine to see if you enjoy snorting cocaine in your leasure time. I don’t have a right to your medical records (unless you’re a pilot) and I can’t ask who you voted for. We have several protected classes in this country… deadbeats and criminals are still fair game.

If you don’t like those rules or feel that my company dosen’t have the right to invade your privacy then start your own business… this is still the land of opportunity afterall.
