Tell TransUnion to stop selling credit reports to employers!
As state legislators across the country have stood up against hiring practices that have a discriminatory impact, TransUnion has led the credit reporting industry in defending the use of credit reports in employment.
The Chicago Tribune reported: "In Illinois, legislators said privately held TransUnion twice attempted to introduce language into a proposed Employee Credit Privacy Act that would have rendered it meaningless."
The New York Times has also noted that even as TransUnion has worked against these bills it has admitted that it doesn’t have "any research to show any statistical correlation between what's in somebody's credit report and their job performance or their likelihood to commit fraud."
Now, civil rights groups, consumer advocates, labor unions and others across the country are calling on TransUnion to change course by stopping its sale of credit reports to employers.
