1 Criminal Records/Background Checking Laws January 2014 There are no specific, Federal, "employment background check laws" per se. But employment-related provisions of the Federal Fair Credit Reporting Act have generally set privacy, accuracy and other standards for credit checks, which are often part of employment background checks. The Federal Bankruptcy Act also compensates to a degree for the absence of specific, Federal, background check laws. The employment-related provisions of the Bankruptcy Act make it unlawful for employers to discriminate against employees and job applicants because of bankruptcy or the bad debts they had before filing for bankruptcy. Prior to making inquiries regarding an applicant s or employee s criminal records, employers should conduct a careful review of related federal and state laws, including the status of employee privacy protections. Employers in certain types of industries such as health care, financial services, law enforcement, and education may be required to check criminal records under federal or state law. Prior to making inquiries into an applicant s or employee s criminal records, employers should establish whether such inquiries will adversely impact minority persons and whether the inquiry is directly related to job performance or justified by a legitimate business necessity; An employment practice that adversely impacts minorities without a justifiable business necessity for the practice is considered a violation of Title VII.

If any conviction is reversed and the formerly convicted person is acquitted of the offense in a new trial, or the charges are dismissed, this section does not prohibit his or her employment thereafter.
