    Michael, what do you mean by “Companies have to make sure they do not rely on FCRA-protected information in a background check of a potential job applicant”? Do you mean that if they rely on such information they have to comply with the law re disclosures and other matters? I don’t think you are saying that companies can’t rely on FCRA protected information in making hiring decisions.

      Hi Ray: Thanks for the question and the clarification. I think your point is well taken — my statement wsa meant that companies cannot use FCRA information without complying with the FCRA; so you cannot take protected informaiton, disclose it to a third party (e.g. a reference) or someone else. It was not very carefully written. Thanks
