Addison Smith Mechanical Contractor, Inc. (the “Company”) may request background information
about you from a consumer reporting agency in connection with your employment application and for employment purposes. The report ordered is defined by the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) as a Consumer Report, and all inquiries are limited to information that affects job performance and the workplace. It is conducted in accordance with applicable federal and state laws including the FCRA. The screening will be conducted by an outside agency — GoodHire, LLC. – Address: P.O. Box 391403 Omaha, NE 68139 | Phone: 1-888-906- 7351 | Fax: 650-362-1933 | Email: email@example.com. As a result, GoodHire may obtain a Consumer Report on you as an applicant or during employment.
A consumer report is a compilation of information that might affect your employability. The scope of the report may include information concerning your driving record, civil and criminal court records, credit, drug screening results, worker’s compensation record, education, credentials, identity, past addresses, social security number, previous employment and personal references.
Should an employer rely upon a consumer report for an adverse action, the FCRA mandates you be provided with a copy of the consumer report and a summary of your rights. An adverse action is defined as “a denial of employment or any other decision for employment purposes that adversely affects any current or prospective employee.”

The federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) promotes the accuracy, fairness, and privacy of information in the files of consumer reporting agencies.

Here is a summary of your major rights under the FCRA. For more information, including information about additional rights, go to www.consumerfinance.gov/learnmore or write to: Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, 1700 G Street N.W., Washington, DC 20552.
