Investigative Consumer Reporting Agencies Act (California)

California law was amended in 2001 to give job applicants as well as current employees greater rights to see the results of background checks. You also now have a better chance to find out about inaccurate or incomplete information. (CA Civil Code §1786)

The California law is broader in scope than the federal FCRA. It covers third-party employment screeners, as does the FCRA. But it also covers employers who conduct background checks themselves, something the FCRA omits.

Applicants and employees in California have all the rights of the FCRA and more, but there are differences.
