Webinar Summary: Income and Employment Verifications and FCRA
In our recent webinar, Montserrat Miller, a partner with the Privacy and Consumer Regulatory practice group at Arnall Golden Gregory LLP, explained how the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) applies to verifications of employment and income.
The webinar also addressed how employment verification services work generally, and discussed The Work Number® services as an example.
The topics addressed during the webinar were:
- Responsibility of third party verification providers to be compliant with the FCRA
- The role and obligations of employers who furnish data pursuant to the FCRA
- Obligations of organizations requesting data pursuant to the FCRA
- The potential legal risks of inaccurate verifications
- Best practices you can apply to your verification fulfillment process
One of the best practices discussed in the webinar was confirming the identity of verifiers during a verification request. Surprisingly, results of a poll taken during the webinar showed that only 13% of webinar attendees independently confirm the verifier name, and only 8% independently confirm the verifier phone number, as shown on the poll results on the right.
