- Total Time
I recently pulled a copy of my credit report and I was surprised to notice that my employer had pulled a credit check on me back in Apr. I had been with this employer for over five years when they pulled a report and I don't recall ever signing a release that would authorize the HR department to do such a thing. My understanding that HR can pull a report for initial pre-employment screening but they have to have your consent. Am I correct in this assumption and any clue why they would pull a report almost five years later and do I have any repercussion with my now ex-employer?
