Introduction From The Editor

This edition of our monthly e-newsletter includes an article explaining the importance of employment credit reports as part of the background screening process, and when employers should and shouldn’t be requesting these types of reports.

Our legal alert covers California Assembly Bill 22, which limits employers from utilizing credit reports as part of the employment background check.

Finally, our tip of the month discusses the significance of background checks for seasonal and temporary employees.

Please forward our e-newsletter to friends and colleagues who may benefit from our published information.

We wish you and your family a prosperous New Year.
