FCRA Compliance

HireHonest is in full compliance with the governing standards in our industry. Below are some of the industry-governing acts, organizations and laws with which we comply 100%.

FCRA Compliance

The Federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) is designed to ultimately protect individuals by promoting the accuracy and fairness of information in the files of Consumer Reporting Agencies (CRA). A CRA is any company that gathers and provides information about individuals to creditors, employers and landlords. Companies that perform pre-employment screening, such as HireHonest, are also governed by the FCRA, as are the employers that utilize HireHonest’s background services.

HireHonest provides FCRA compliance information and templates of all letters and forms to comply with the FCRA employment background screening requirements, including:

  • Adverse Action Letters
  • Summary of Consumer Rights
  • Applicant Disclosure and Consent Forms

Compliance with Canadian Reporting Regulations

HireHonest follows the guidelines set forth in the Canadian Privacy Act with regard to the protection of applicant information for employment screening purposes. HireHonest will provide the necessary forms required for applicant consent for criminal, credit and driving records reporting as defined by the Ministry of Transportation (MOT), the Canadian Police Information Centre (CPIC) and governing bodies of the individual Canadian provinces and territories (E.g. provincial departments of motor vehicles).
