I live in California and read that a law was passed in 2011 (AB22) prohibiting employers from requiring credit checks as a condition of employment, unless the position is in a particular category (managerial, financial institution, handles more than $10k cash, confidential or proprietary information, etc.). I've received an offer as a biller for a law firm. (I won't be handling any cash in the position). I don't think the position falls under any exception except maybe the confidential information exception, but it seems that deals more with trade secrets and things like that. If I don't agree to the credit check, can they rescind the offer?Also, this is not an at-will issue since I haven't taken the job. I'm also not interested in taking an "adversarial posture" with the employer, which is why I sought out this forum to see if anyone has had experience with this issue. I'm interested if any Employment Law Attorneys have had experience with the California law Governor Brown signed into effect in late 2011 that now prohibits employers from requiring a credit check as a condition of employment for most positions.
