Thomson-Shore, when considering your application for employment, when making a decision whether to offer you employment, when deciding whether to continue your employment (if you are hired), and when making other employment-related decisions directly affecting you, may wish to obtain and use a "consumer report" from a "consumer reporting agency" about you. These terms are defined in the Fair Credit Reporting Act ("FCRA"), which applies to you.
As an applicant for employment or employee of Thomson-Shore, you are a "consumer" with rights under the FCRA.
A "consumer reporting agency" is a person or business which, for monetary fees, dues, or on a cooperative nonprofit basis, regularly assembles or evaluates consumer credit information or other information on consumers for the purpose of furnishing "consumer reports" to others, such as Thomson-Shore.
A "consumer report" is any written, oral, or other communication of any information by a "consumer reporting agency" bearing on a consumer's credit worthiness, credit standing, credit capacity, character, general reputation, personal characteristics, or mode of living which is used or collected for the purpose of serving as a factor in establishing the consumer's eligibility for employment purposes.
If Thomson-Shore obtains a "consumer report" about you, and if Thomson-Shore considers any information in the "consumer report" when making an employment-related decision that adversely affect you, you will be provided with a copy of the "consumer report", with regard to "consumer reports" and "consumer reporting agencies".
By selecting "yes" below, I voluntarily authorize Thomson-Shore to obtain "consumer reports" about me from a "consumer reporting agency" and to consider the "consumer reports" when making decisions regarding my employment at Thomson-Shore.
