Disclosure and Authorization
to Obtain Consumer Reports for Employment/Volunteer Purposes


Please Read Carefully!


In considering you for a volunteer position or employment and, if you are employed, in considering you for subsequent promotion, assignment, reassignment, retention, or discipline, Canopy of Neighbors (“the Company”) may request and rely upon one or more consumer reports or investigative consumer reports about you that we obtain from a consumer reporting agency, such as IntelliCorp Records, Inc.


For explanation purposes:


  • a “consumer report” is a written, oral or other communication of any information by a consumer reporting agency bearing on your credit worthiness, credit standing, credit capacity, character, general reputation, personal characteristics, or mode of living which is used or expected to be used or collected in whole or in part for the purpose of serving as a factor in making an employment-related decision about you. Such information may include, for example, credit information, reports from government sources, criminal history reports, or driving records; and
  • an “investigative consumer report” is a consumer report in which information on your character, general reputation, personal characteristics, or mode of living is obtained through personal interviews with your prior employers, neighbors, friends, or associates, or with others who may have knowledge concerning any such items of information. In the event an investigative consumer report is requested about you, you are entitled to additional disclosures regarding the nature and scope of the investigation requested, as well as a written summary of your rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (“FCRA”).

Under the FCRA, before the Company can obtain a consumer report or investigative consumer report about you for employment purposes, we must have your authorization. Before we take adverse action on the basis, in whole or in part, of information in that report, you will be provided a copy of that report, the name, address, and telephone number of the consumer reporting agency, and a summary of your rights under the FCRA.
