Going Beyond FCRA-Compliant Background Checks: What Regulations Do We Comply With?
We comply with all regulations and laws pertaining to employment and screening, such as the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), to name just a couple of the more well-known acronyms.
