Background Check Adverse Action Letter
Author: Mark Levine, Weycer, Kaplan, Pulaski & Zuber, PC
When to Use
All employers should have a background check policy for job applicants and employees. An employer must first get the applicant's or employee's written consent when conducting an outside background check by a third party, and may not deny employment based in whole or in part on the findings without sending the individual an adverse action letter.
