Privacy concerns have been sweeping across the globe and the United States is not immune to its impact. It is not surprising that numerous states have introduced legislation to protect the privacy and data of its residents. However, it is unexpected that California and Michigan have gone further, seeking to redact personal identifiers in court records. This practice can and will drastically impair background screening programs, especially affecting employers.
In this webinar, we will discuss why identifier redaction is a current concern, specifically examining the landscape in California and Michigan that led to this new trend. We will then review the importance of identifiers in background screening and the obligations of AccuSource when reporting records. We will also consider why identifier redaction may gain momentum and how it complements the privacy laws that are becoming more popular in the United States. We will complete the webinar with best practices and suggest how impacted clients can approach identifier redaction.
