THEN, after all that in the first 45 pages, it covers state-by-state "laws regarding pre-employment inquiries, fingerprinting, fair credit, labor & employment, privacy, civil rights, & background screening involving children, financial institutions, law enforcement"...& details specific state guidelines, cited specifically & including statute number, & searches available in each state.

If you haven't already read the previous 2 reviews, please do so. I won't reiterate the good things that were already said. However, the information provided by Mr. Nadell was more than sufficient enough for me to successfully start a 2nd business as a pre-employment and tenant backgound check service. Thank you Mr. Nadell for clarifying the FCRA statutes for the layman.
