Earlier this year, Congress passed the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act (S. 2155). The legislation provides new consumer rights to a national credit freeze.
As a result, on September 12, 2018, The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) published an updated Summary of Rights Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) that incorporates this right into the notice.
The updated form is now available in the Resources section of EASE.
This may also be a good time to review other documents associated with your background screening program, including disclosure and authorization forms, Adverse Action forms and processes, state specific notices, etc. You can always find the latest versions of these import forms and notices in our Resource Center, accessible from the EASE dashboard. Corporate Screening customers should have received a direct link to this resource center via e-mail.
Update/Replace the Notice
Any copies of this notice used at your organization should be replaced with the updated notice. This includes notices that appear electronically in your Application Tracking System.
Effective Date – September 21, 2018
