Financial Discrimination

Credit checks can be discriminatory when used in pre-employment investigations for non-cash handling jobs and act in place of prejudice against age, gender, and race .

These financial background checks anger more and more long-term unemployed job seekers from before the 2008 Presidential Election. Union jobs began to disappear, plants closed down, small businesses dried up and people were out of work. There are not enough job openings yet for all the unemployed.

Analysts found in American corporate employment records, that personal credit histories do not correlate with financial and materiel handling dishonesty at work or with poor job performance. The injsistance on credit checks for job applications seems discriminatory.
