A:     Although it is possible for a client or applicant to scan an email their Consent Form Request for Background Screening, the more secure
method is faxing.  BSASS LLC employs a fax to email methodology whereby the fax is encrypted in the transmission process, and is only
decrypted when the email is received, and the fax, in its encrypted form, is ultimately downloaded and decrypted.  Unless you dial the wrong fax
number your transmission is very secure.

Q:     I see FCRA and credit reporting on my consent form.  Will a credit report be done?
A:     Originally developed as a guide to credit reporting agencies, the FCRA now applies the same rules for credit reporting and criminal
background reporting.  A signed Consent and Authorization form does not necessarily mean that a credit report will be done on you, although it
may if permitted by law and you are informed that it will be done.  There are strict rules about credit reporting that are getting stricter all the
time.  You may read the entire Fair Credit Reporting Act by following this link:

Q:     How long does it take to get a report back?
A:     BSASS LLC online background checks are normally provided in not more than three working days,
AND USUALLY WITHIN 8 BUSINESS
HOURS
, in an easy-to-understand written format.  Reports are available for view at all stages of the research process, however, no report is
considered complete until it has been finalized and delivered to client.  There are many reasons why a report may take longer than expected.  
You will be informed via the online platform for usual and customary delays, or directly if unusual circumstances come to light.

Q:     Do negligent hiring penalties apply to nonprofit organizations?
A:     Not for profit organizations are more and more held to the same standards and accountability as regular employers.  Formerly often
immune from lawsuits, “good faith” is no longer defensible.  The FCRA has always arguably applied to volunteers because reports about them
deal with whether they are eligible to volunteer or not. The FTC has recently made clear its long time view that volunteers will fall under the
"employment purposes" permissible purpose of the FCRA, according to documentation in the publication:  Forty Years Under the FCRA
publication. As such, a non-profit will be wise to comply with all of the requirements under the Section 604 of the FCRA relating to a consumer
report obtained for employment purposes which includes, but is not limited to:
•Notice of negative information before an adverse action is taken (such as refusing a volunteer's application)
•A right to receive a copy of the report
•A right to appeal an adverse decision
•Proper retention and disposal of information included in a report.
In addition, an end-user of a report governed by the FCRA, e.g. a volunteer organization, must certify that the report will only be used for the
purpose it was ordered. In short, a volunteer background check conducted by a reputable screening company gives the volunteer the same rights
and privacy protections that employees have.
