In regards to Texas 7 year law when CRAs report criminal arrests/convictions.

Asked 11 months ago - Houston, TX

Its my understanding that if the job you are applying for pays less than 75,000 then CRAs are not allowed to report arrests or convictions that predate the report by 7 years. Are there any types of businesses which allow the consumer reporting agency to ignore this law when reporting criminal arrests and/or convictions?
