Why is our current administration continuing to put road blocks up that only serve to derail any chance for economic recovery?
Our economy is already screwed and high unemployment is here to stay. Now the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is suing companies that have the nerve to conduct background and credit checks on applicants!!
Yet, if a company doesn't conduct background checks, and an employee with a criminal history goes on to hurt another worker or a member of the public, they will likely get sued by the victim or the victim's survivors!!
In Obama's world, between this, taxes and health care, it will be a lot easier for companies to just not hire anyone!! Which means the economy and unemployment will only continue to get worse, not better.

I DO think a criminal background check is a good idea but NOT a credit check, unless they are going into the finance industry and even then it needs to NOT have everything on it. I agree with notpanicking, there are some things on credit reports that are no ones business such outstanding balance for medical reasons.

Criminal back ground check I understand. Credit back ground check is ridiculous. If someone is in a bad situation because of the economy. It wouldn't be a far stretch that their credit score is hurting. Now not only are they having financial difficulties because of the economy, they are judged for it. What a vicious cycle.
