Important: background checks are subject to state and federal laws. Please consult your attorney if you have any questions about developing a lawful background screening process or if you have any questions or concerns about your rights as an employer or the rights and privileges of individuals subject to background screening. US Background checks are subject to federal anti-discrimination laws and other laws such as the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003 (FACT Act or FACTA). These laws require subjects of background checks to receive written notice and to sign an authorization to permit you to secure a background check. Furthermore, you have obligations to the consumer if you take adverse action on the basis of certain background check results. Please review the compliance documents on the S2Verify web site. State laws do vary and may impose additional requirements on you as an employer, remember to consult your attorney before implementing a background screening program.
