FORMS UPDATE: Fair Credit Reporting Act and Family Medical Leave Act

Printer-friendly version

Fair Credit Reporting Act

The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) requires, among other things, employers who utilize reports from consumer reporting agencies for the purpose of evaluating applicants or employees, to provide a notice summarizing the individual’s rights under the FCRA prior to taking an adverse action.  The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), the federal agency which oversees the FCRA, has issued an updated form “A Summary of Your Rights Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act” which reflect changes in the law regarding an individual’s ability to obtain a security freeze on their credit report.  The updated form is available here and employers should begin using it immediately.

Family Medical Leave Act

Updated versions of the US Department of Labor’s forms for compliance with the federal Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) have been posted to the EANJ website and are available here.  Every three years, the DOL is required to submit the forms to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for approval.  The only change to the forms are the updated expiration dates.
