FCRA Compliance Information poster includes three notices: the revised “Summary of Consumer Rights” (effective Jan. 1, 2013); an FCRA Background Investigations notice to inform applicants and employees of their rights and obligations; and an Identity Theft Prevention notice to comply with requirements pertaining to shredding sensitive documents and protecting valuable consumer data.
