My employer will be conducting background investigations on all current and new employees. Paperwork distributed by employer states that employees may be subject of a "consumer report" and/or an "investigative consumer report." What information does the employer have access to via these reports? The company they will be using for these reports is First Advantage Screening Solutions. What span of time do the reports cover? Does shoplifting (not involving arrest) where the bill/fine was paid show up on the report? How about lawsuits, (termination of) prior employment, etc.? Any information that could be provided is greatly appreciated.
