Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Opposes Restricting Credit Checks for Employment Decisions Act!
SHRM submitted a letter to the leaders of the House Financial Services Committee expressing their opposition to H.R. 3614, the Restricting Credit Checks for Employment Decisions Act. In the letter, SHRM cited data that supports checking credit for certain positions, such as financial, security, and fiduciary roles as a means to mitigate losses, risks, and liability, as well as create better, more secure workplaces. SHRM also stated their belief that employers need to have the ability to put into place policies and procedures that fulfill the needs of their companies. Read the full letter here.
