    Employment Credit Checks ...

    At a company where I am doing some work, they needed some more resources to help with a project. There were 2 individuals that had the background we needed but were currently unemployed for a while. One had lost their house and the other had a car repoed ... Ok, maybe we could help them ... but the company refused to hire them because of a bad credit report ... not any criminal activity .... but Bad Credit.

    Researching that a little bit, I now see there are about 10 states that have Banned there employment credit checks ... because they serve no job purpose and eliminate people from work. They say is shows how a person handles their finances and relates to how they might perform ... However, several studies so no correlation.

    So, If Bad Credit Shows an Employment Problem ... How About Divorced People ?

    On the Background Check there is a public section that shows Divorces. Would you hire a Divorced Person ? Clearly, if they can't manage their own lives and affairs, why do you think they can be trusted to manage a companies affairs ?

    So, they are still unemployed.
