Adverse Action

Employers can utilize a drop-down menu within the Inquirehire Instascreen platform to select Pre-Adverse Action and Adverse Action notices. Included in the selection is a copy of the report and Summary of Your Rights Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act. 

Important note:  Some state and city jurisdictions (i.e. CA, NY, etc) have additional requirements or special language that needs to be included. Please seek assistance from your legal counsel to ensure compliance.

Step 1
Before you take the adverse action, you must give the individual a pre-adverse action notice that includes a copy of the individual’s consumer report and a copy of A Summary of Your Rights Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act a document prescribed by the Federal Trade Commission. Inquirehire will provide you with the summary of consumer rights.
