You want to provide the most seamless experience for your clients possible, and it can get annoying if they have to constantly log in to different systems.

Avoid Costly Litigation with InstaScreens User Certification and QuickView Tools
According to Section 604(b) of the Fair Credit Reporting Act, employers must certify that they have authorization to run a background check. Also, employers must ensure the applicant is provided with an opportunity to receive a “copy of the report” and a “description in writing of the rights of the consumer” before taking any adverse action. Recent litigation has proved to be costly for screening agencies and employers who are not current in their compliance practices. The blanket certification clause outlined in your contract may not be enough.
