RECENTLY ON TOL:
- A tumblr site dedicated to the people and places that make up Oregon and Southwest Washington.
Two things bother me on top of what others wrote.
First, credit reports are full of errors! How fair would that be to be denied a job based on an error that the credit reporting agency made?
Second, using credit reports is probably more being used as a way to find out things that an employer is not legally allowed to ask. For example, they can't ask you for your age, marital status, sexual orientation, if you have a disability, etc., but that might be something they can find out about via reading a credit report.
This is an excellent piece of legislation. Let's pass it.
