On June 9, 2015, Nevada Governor Sandoval signed S.B. 409. The bill revised the state law relating to background reports by consumer reporting agencies (CRAs).
S.B. 409 eliminated the seven (7) year reporting restriction for criminal convictions. This means that in Nevada, there is no longer a time limitation for which a criminal conviction can be reported. The bill also permits background screening companies to prepare a report/conduct an investigation in response to a request from a licensed gaming establishment pursuant to the gaming establishment’s internal investigation of a person seeking employment with the establishment, or in a position connected directly to the operations of the gaming establishment.
