Securecheck360 has in-depth knowledge on laws that govern the pre-employment screening industry. It is our commitment to stay on top of any legal changes and help protect clients. However, Securecheck360 does not act as legal counsel for clients. Client is responsible for retaining counsel to advise it regarding proper use of consumer reports; compliance with the FCRA, the Driver Privacy Protection Act, 18 U.S.C. §2721 et seq (“DPPA”) and other applicable federal, state and local laws; and development of an appropriate screening program for Client’s use of consumer reports.
We are actively gathering new information and updates that set a national standard and strive to ensure that all of the screening methods are equitable and legally compliant. We have been participating in the conferences and webinar for employment law updates from PBSA, HR and EEOC conferences for state and nationwide level. Due to the nature of complicated laws and responsibilities, we strive to educate our team specifically to California. Such as “Ban the Box”, we update our clients’ of their legal responsibilities as employers. Also, we ensure that our certified verifiers stay abreast of FCRA guidelines and ensure that they are trained with monthly webinar from PBSA and reviews the weekly updates from governing parties (e.g. FCRA, FTC, EEOC, DPPA, State Rules through The Public Record Authority, BRB).
Securecheck360 complies with all applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations, including, but not limited to, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, and the Investigative Consumer Reporting Agencies Act. We take multiple measures to ensure legal compliance. We are an accredited member of the PBSA, and as such we receive regular updates on pending legislation and regulatory action that may impact our business and our clients.
We also support client compliance by providing resource materials, links to agency websites, sample compliance documents (Disclosure & Authorization Forms, Pre-and Post-Adverse Action Letters, etc.). Whenever there is new legislation or regulatory guidance that would impact our services and clients, we communicate information to our clients via email newsletter, mail, invoicing inserts or personal telephone calls.
