I believe this bill is turely disturbing. There are so many other useful things these lawmakers could be doing, but yet they are mucking around in these small details.
1. If checking an applicants credit score is a bad way to screen for potentially good employees then the companies who do so will miss out on great hires. Those great hires will go to employers who don't use this possibly incorrect tool. The business will be punished for using this method.
2. If checking an applicants credit score is a great way to screen for potentially good employees then the opposite is true. Those people who care about their credit and work hard to keep that report in good shape will benefit by being offered better jobs possibly.
I presume (with no knowledge on the matter other than common sense) that there would be a discussion between the employer and employee on the results of the credit scrore, because honestly that stagnet number doesn't mean a whole lot alone. This is how capitalism works. Yet another exmaple of how the government is irresponsibly getting their hand involved in the work place. Sen Rosenbaum should spend her time working out the many problems with Oregon's pubic school system not this baloney. How much will this useless regulation cost Oregon taxpayers??!
