DISCLOSURE NOTICE AND AUTHORIZATION REGARDING CONSUMER AND INVESTIGATIVE REPORTS
IMPORTANT: Please read and consider carefully before signing.
In accordance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (“FCRA”), Home First Certified and its affiliates (the “Company”) may obtain consumer reports and/or investigative consumer reports regarding your character, employment history, general reputation, criminal record, education, qualifications, motor vehicle record, references, mode of living, credit characteristics (including credit standing, credit capacity and credit worthiness), and/or other personal characteristics in connection with your potential or actual employment with the Company. Pursuant to this disclosure, and your signed authorization below, the Company may obtain consumer reports and/or investigative consumer reports at any time during the employment application process or, as permitted by law, during employment with the Company. The fact that the Company may obtain a consumer and/or investigative consumer report on you does not mean, and should not be construed to mean, that the Company has otherwise decided to offer you employment.
Whenever it is required by the FCRA, before any adverse action is taken by the Company based in whole or part on information contained in a consumer report or investigative consumer report, you will receive a copy of the report, the name, address and telephone number of the consumer reporting agency, and a summary of your rights under the FCRA. You are entitled to a complete and accurate disclosure of the nature and scope of any investigative consumer report of which you are the subject upon your written request to the Company, if such is made within a reasonable time after the date hereof. You may also obtain a written summary of your rights under 12 U.S.C. § 1681 et seq.
I hereby authorize, without reservation, the Company and/or its affiliates to obtain consumer reports and/or investigative consumer reports concerning me at any time for employment-related purposes. I understand that such consumer reports and investigative consumer reports may contain information regarding my character, employment history, general reputation, criminal record, education, qualifications, motor vehicle record, references, mode of living, credit characteristics (including credit standing, credit capacity and credit worthiness), or other personal characteristics. I recognize that, as permitted by law, the Company has the right to obtain additional consumer reports in the future regarding me as to any employment-related matter.
I further authorize all persons and entities to release all written and verbal information about me to the Company and/or its agents, any consumer reporting agency or any other entity, for use by the Company for employment-related purposes. I hereby agree to hold harmless from liability and responsibility, and to release, the Company and those affiliated with it from any and all liability, claims and/or demands of whatever kind regarding the compilation or preparation of the consumer report and/or investigative consumer report hereby authorized, and from decisions made concerning my application for or continuation of employment based upon the results of the background investigation.
I authorize the use of the identifying information provided below in conducting the background investigation and/or compiling a consumer report or investigative consumer report. I understand that refusal to permit a background investigation or failure of the background investigation may result in the Company denying my application for employment or immediately terminating my employment.
I hereby authorize that a photocopy of this authorization may be construed as an original.
