Get Ready to Comply: Employers Must Use New FCRA Model Disclosure Form by September 21, 2018

Under an interim final rule issued on September 12, 2018, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFBP) has issued a new model disclosure form that employers and background check companies are required to use, effective September 21, 2018. The new form contains a “security freeze right” notice that must be provided to individuals as a part of Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) disclosures. Failure to provide the disclosure form as required when conducting background checks can land employers in hot water, including class action litigation.
