What information is not reportable under the FCRA?
A) Unless the annual salary of the applicant/employee is expected to meet or exceed $75,000 annually, the FCRA restricts the reporting of certain information deemed obsolete, as noted below (note: some states have laws that pre-empt the FCRA’s salary cap. California, for example, generally limits the reporting of most information to seven years, except for bankruptcy, which is 10 years, regardless of the salary amount):
Civil lawsuits, civil judgments and arrest records that antedate the report by more than seven years or until the governing statute of limitations has expired, whichever is longer;
Accounts placed in collection or charged to profit-and-loss which antedate the report by more than seven years;
Bankruptcies after 10 years;
Paid tax liens after seven years;
Any other negative information after seven years (except criminal convictions for which the FCRA places no time limit unless state law provides otherwise).
B) General or neutral information such as discrepancies in employment dates, position titles, degrees earned, etc. is not considered “adverse information” for purposes of the FCRA.
