As part of this inquiry, my complete criminal and driving records will be reviewed, civil litigation records and all records held by SCJFS will be checked.

I understand that this information is confidential and that disclosure of this information to me and to others will be governed by SCFJS policy and federal/state/local laws. (Please see Fair Credit Reporting Act disclosure statement)

I also understand that I have rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, which has been provided to me by SCJFS. This authorization will remain in effect throughout the term of employment, if hired. Any false or misleading statements I have made will be sufficient cause for rejection of my application or termination without consideration of any progressive disciplinary procedure, if hired. I have read and authorized the preceding statement.

Fair Credit Reporting Act and Disclosure Statement

APPLICANT: Please read the following statement and complete the below authorization form. Print this disclosure statement for your records.

Stark County Job & Family Services (SCJFS), when considering your application for employment, when making a decision whether to continue your employment (if hired), and when making other employment related decisions directly affecting you, may wish to obtain and use a "consumer report" from a "consumer reporting agency." These terms are defined in the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), which applies to you. As an applicant for employment or an employee of SCJFS, you are a "consumer" with rights under FCRA.

A "consumer reporting agency" is a person or business that, for monetary fees, dues, or on a cooperative nonprofit basis, regularly assembles or evaluates consumer credit information on consumers for the purpose of furnishing "consumer reports" to others, such as SCJFS.

A "consumer report" is any written, oral or other communication of any information by a "consumer reporting agency" bearing on a consumer's character, general reputation, personal characteristics or mode of living which is used or collected for the purpose of serving as a factor in establishing the consumer's eligibility for employment purposes.For SCJFS purposes, a consumer report will consist of a criminal background check, employment verification, reference checking, and may consist of educational verification and civil litigation records check.

If SCJFS obtains a "consumer report" about you, and if SCJFS considers any information in the "consumer report" when making an employment related decision that directly and adversely affects you, you will be notified before the decision is finalized and you will be provided with a copy of the "consumer report." You may also contact the Federal Trade Commission about your rights under the FCRA as a "consumer" with regard to "consumer reports" and "consumer reporting agencies."
