"Fair" ??? Credit Reporting Act
This is found on job descriptions, and if you don't agree to it, you cannot apply: "in compliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act and Consumer Credit Reporting Reform Act of 1996, information from my consumer report may be obtained for employment purposes" ..... but, if a person isn't given a job then how are they EVER going to be able to fix their credit?!
Some of these background checks are just going a bit far, and they could exclude perfectly capable individuals from getting jobs. At this rate, they aren't going to have many people left who can work!
