Can an Employer Deny Me a Job Because of My Bad Credit?


Can an Employer Deny Me a Job Because of My Bad Credit?


It’s a common question job seekers ask: can an employer deny me a job because of my bad credit? The answer is maybe. Here’s what you need to know about employers and credit checks.


Most employers will run a credit check as part of the background check process. They may use this information to determine if you’re financially responsible and therefore a good fit for the position. However, there are some restrictions on how employers can use your credit information.


Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, employers can only use information from your credit report for positions that require financial responsibility. For example, if you’re applying for a job that involves handling money or company finances, your employer can consider your credit history in their decision-making process.
