How To Know If An Employer Pulled Your Credit Report Or Background Check – MI Attorney Ian Lyngklip
Listen as Ian Lyngklip describes how to tell if an employer has pulled a background check on you or if they have pulled your credit report.
If you’ve applied for a job, you know that many employers require you to submit to a background check before they hire you. The employer must first obtain your permission to run a background check or credit report.
If you suspect that an employer unlawfully ran a background check on you, or that the contents of such a report may have been used against you without your knowledge, then there are steps you can take. First, you need to pull all of your major credit reports. There is a section called inquiries on these reports. This section will tell you who has accessed your credit or background reports in the preceding two years.
If you have questions about how to get your credit report, you can visit my website at On that website, we have a series of letters that you can use to order your major credit reports and to determine whether someone ordered a background check on you. Watch the video to learn more.
