NYC publishes interpretative enforcement guide concerning recent ban on applicant credit checks
Tags : Credit Reporting, Enacted Legislation
The New York City Commission on Human Rights released the document concerning the Stop Credit Discrimination in Employment Act (“SCDEA”), which went into effect on September 3.
According the document, the SCDEA, which amends the New York City Human Rights Law, the SCDEA “is intended to stop employers from using consumer credit history when making employment decisions—a practice that has a disproportionately negative effect on unemployed people, low income communities, communities of color, women, domestic violence survivors, families with children, divorced individuals, and those with student loans and/or medical bills.”
According the City Council, the law was created with the intention of being “the strongest bill of its type in the country prohibiting discriminatory employment credit checks.”
