Sample Adverse Action Notice

Dear Employee Name:

The letter is provided to you in compliance with the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act.

As part of our employment selection process, we require that a consumer report be obtained before an offer of employment is made to any applicant being considered for the position for which you applied. You previously should have received a copy of your consumer report and summary of your rights under the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act.

This is to advise you that your application for employment is being denied. In evaluating your application, the consumer reporting agency listed below provided us with the information which, in whole or in part, influenced our employment decision. This consumer reporting agency played no part in our decision other than providing the information about you, and the agency will not be able to provide you with specific reasons for our denial.

Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, you are entitled to disclosure of the information contained in your consumer report by contacting the consumer reporting agency directly, within sixty (60) days of this letter. You also have the right to dispute the completeness or accuracy of the report. If you want to receive another copy of the report, please contact the Employer or the consumer reporting agency (the name, address and telephone number appears below).
