Webinar: FCRA Compliance: From Delinquent Loans to New Hires
Thursday, April 16, 2020, 03:00pm - 04:30pm

Whether using credit reports for lending or for pre-employment screening, you must comply with FCRA. Failure to do so could cause you to run afoul of the CFPB and examiners or blaze a trail toward eager consumer protection attorneys.


  • Appreciate the increasing credit reporting compliance risks
  • Understand the critical steps to respond to credit report disputes
  • Avoid employment-screening-related Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) issues
  • Conduct a credit reporting inventory
  • Identify and avoid common compliance landmines


Credit reports continue to play an essential role in financial institution operations – but not just in lending. They are frequently used as a pre-employment screening tool. However, credit reporting continues to be one of the most cited consumer concerns and has therefore received added attention from the CFPB, examiners, and consumer “protection” and employment attorneys.

Fortunately, the regulations, examination guidance, and hard-earned experience provide detailed lessons regarding compliant credit reporting and use – if you know where to look. This webinar will focus on these unique operational and compliance challenges. From consumer disputes to confidentiality and the gray areas in-between, this session will provide a common-sense approach to creating a clean, manageable FCRA process.


This informative session is designed for senior executives, managers, human resources staff, compliance personnel, lending staff, collections managers, frontline managers, internal auditors, and anyone involved with credit reporting.
