A poor hiring decision can expose your community health center and its patients to risk and liability. In response, many health centers are running background checks to better screen potential job candidates.
However, since 2014, there have been an estimated 30 class-action and thousands of private-action lawsuits brought against employers for alleged violations of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), a federal law that regulates how consumer reports — credit checks, criminal background checks and traffic reports — are used.
