HR Question of the Week

Friday, October 24, 2014

: We have an applicant for a Loan Processor position who was extended a conditional offer of employment contingent on a background report. The background report came back with a bankruptcy from four years ago. This individual has great job-related experiences and is an excellent fit for the position, but we decided not to continue with the employment offer based on the bankruptcy. We sent her the pre-adverse action letter, copy of the report and the “rights summary”. The letter indicated that we were considering discontinuing the employment opportunity and that she had 5 business days to contact the Consumer Reporting Agency. Within two days, we received a phone call from the applicant stating that she would like an opportunity to explain the bankruptcy. How would you recommend that I proceed at this point?
