Effective January 1, 2013, employers must update their FCRA notices. The forms
are being updated to reflect that enforcement of FCRA is now under the Consumer
Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), rather than the Federal Trade Commission
The forms which must be updated include:
- A Summary of Your Rights Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act
- Notice to Furnishers of Information: Obligations of Furnishers Under the FCRA
- Notice to Users of Consumer Reports: Obligations of Users Under the FCRA
For more information on FCRA notices, see the Background Checks analysis.
