Late last month, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals issued an opinion that will substantially shape the way employers fulfill their disclosure obligations (required under both state and federal mandates) in the future. While the opinion does not directly affect providers like CHR or the jurisdictions we cover, the ruling sets a precedent for employers and Consumer Reporting Agencies (CRAs) subject to the FCRA to consider.
