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

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?

  1. There are some job positions and industries that have statutory exceptions to the 75,000 rule.
