In connection with your application for employment or volunteer assignment within the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, please understand that a background check will be performed as part of normal procedure. Information will be obtained about you from a consumer reporting agency. A consumer report may be obtained at any time during the application process and if you are hired or assigned, during your continued employment or volunteer assignment. St. Peter Catholic Church will repeat background checks every five years.
You have the right, upon written request, and after the receipt of this notice, to request a disclosure of the nature and scope of the investigative report. Before a decision is made to deny your employment or volunteer assignment (called adverse action), when the decision is based in whole or in part on the information contained in the report, you will be provided a copy of the report, the name, address and telephone number of the reporting agency, a summary of your rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), as well as additional information regarding your rights under the law.
Note: Even though the federal act is called the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), no credit report will ever be requested. The FCRA also applies to other items of the background check such as criminal records and those listed above.
