Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This legislation, with certain exceptions, prohibits all employers, including counties, from requesting, requiring or obtaining a credit check from a current or potential employee. Credit checks may be used if the employee or potential employee is being evaluated because the position is a managerial position involving setting the direction or control of the "business," involves access to customers', employees' or the county's financial information (other than the information routinely provided in a retail transaction), or involves fiduciary responsibility (including the authority to issue payments, transfer money or enter into contracts).  Violation of this law is a misdemeanor punishable by a fine between $500 to $2,500.
