Tennessee State Veteran’s Homes Board (the “Company”) may request background information about you from a consumer reporting agency in connection with your employment application and for employment purposes. The report ordered is defined by the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) as a Consumer Report, and all inquiries are limited to information that affects job performance and the workplace. It is conducted in accordance with applicable federal and state laws including the FCRA. The screening will be conducted by an outside agency — GoodHire, LLC. – P.O. Box 391146 Omaha, NE 68139 | 1-‐888-‐906-‐7351 | mailto:email@example.com. As a result, GoodHire may obtain a Consumer Report on you as an applicant or during employment.
A consumer report is a compilation of information that might affect your employability. The scope of the report may include information concerning your driving record, civil and criminal court records, credit, worker’s compensation record, education, credentials, identity, past addresses, social security number, previous employment and personal references.
Should an employer rely upon a consumer report for an adverse action, the FCRA mandates you be provided with a copy of the consumer report and a summary of your rights. An adverse action is defined as “a denial of employment or any other decision for employment purposes that adversely affects any current or prospective employee.”
I have carefully read and understand this Candidate Disclosure, Authorization & Consent for the Procurement of Consumer Reports form and the attached summary of rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act. By my signature below, I consent to the release of consumer reports and investigative consumer reports prepared by a consumer reporting agency, such as GoodHire, LLC., to the Company and its designated representatives and agents. I understand that if the Company hires me, my consent will apply, and the Company may obtain reports, throughout my employment. I also understand that information contained in my job application or otherwise disclosed by me before or during my employment, if any, may be used for the purpose of obtaining consumer reports and/or investigative consumer reports. By my signature below, I authorize law enforcement agencies, learning institutions (including public and private schools and universities), information service bureaus, credit bureaus, record/data repositories, courts (federal, state and local), motor vehicle records agencies, my past or present employers, the military, and other individuals and sources to furnish any and all information on me that is requested by the consumer reporting agency. By my signature below, I certify the information I provided on this form is true and correct and will be valid for any reports that may be requested by or on behalf of the Company.
If you are resident of, or performing jobs located in, California, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Massachusetts or New York, you can receive a free copy of any Consumer Report, Investigative Consumer Report or Credit Report by contacting GoodHire at 1-888-906-7351 or firstname.lastname@example.org at 1-888-906-7351 or email@example.com.
The federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) promotes the accuracy, fairness and privacy of information in the files of consumer reporting agencies. There are many types of consumer reporting agencies, including credit bureaus and specialty agencies (such as agencies that sell information about check writing histories, medical records, and rental history records). Here is a summary of your major rights under the FCRA. For more information, including information about additional rights, go to http://www.ftc.gov/credit or write to: Consumer Response Center, Room 130---A, Federal Trade Commission, 600 Pennsylvania Ave. N.W., Washington, DC 20580.
• You must be told if information in your file has been used against you. Anyone who uses a credit report or another type of consumer report to deny your application for credit, insurance, or employment – or to take another adverse action against you – must tell you, and must give you the name, address and phone number of the agency that provided the information.
• You have the right to know what is in your file. You may request and obtain all the information about you in the files of a Consumer Reporting Agency (your “file disclosure”). You will be required to provide proper identification, which may include your Social Security number. In many cases, the disclosure will be free. You are entitled to a free file disclosure if:
In addition, by September 2005 all consumers will be entitled to one free disclosure every 12 months upon request from each nationwide credit bureau and from nationwide specialty consumer reporting agencies. See http://www.ftc.gov/credit for additional information.
• You have the right to ask for a credit score. Credit scores are numerical summaries of your credit worthiness based on information from credit bureaus. You may request a credit score from consumer reporting agencies that create scores or distribute scores used in residential real property loans, but you will have to pay for it. In some mortgage transactions, you will receive credit score information for free from the mortgage lender.
• You have the right to dispute incomplete or inaccurate information. If you identify information in your file that is incomplete or inaccurate and report it to the Consumer Reporting Agency, the agency must investigate unless your dispute is frivolous. See http://www.ftc.gov/credit for an explanation of dispute procedures.
• Consumer reporting agencies must correct or delete inaccurate, incomplete or unverifiable information. Inaccurate, incomplete or unverifiable information must be removed or corrected, usually within 30 days. However, a consumer reporting agency may continue to report information it has verified as accurate.
• Consumer reporting agencies may not report outdated negative information. In most cases, a Consumer Reporting Agency may not report negative information that is more than seven years old, or bankruptcies that are more than 10 years old.
• Access to your file is limited. A Consumer Reporting Agency may provide information about you only to people with a valid need --- usually to consider an application with a creditor, insurer, employer, landlord, or other business. The FCRA specifies those with a valid need for access.
• You must give your consent for reports to be provided to employers. A Consumer Reporting Agency may not give out information about you to your employer, or a potential employer, without your written consent given to the employer. Written consent generally is not required in the trucking industry. For more information, go to http://www.ftc.gov/credit.
• You may limit “prescreened” offers of credit and insurance you get based on information in your credit report. Unsolicited “prescreened” offers for credit and insurance must include a toll---free phone number you can call if you choose to remove your name and address from the lists these offers are based on. You may opt---out with the nationwide credit bureaus at 1-888-567-8688.
• You may seek damages from violators. If a consumer reporting agency, or, in some cases, a user of consumer reports or a furnisher of information to a consumer reporting agency violates the FCRA, you may be able to sue in state or federal court.
• Identity theft victims and active duty military personnel have additional rights. For more information, visit
States may enforce the FCRA, and many states have their own consumer reporting laws. In some cases, you may have more rights under state law. For more information, contact your state or local consumer protection agency or your state Attorney General. Federal enforcers are:
