What about a senior caregiver or nanny credit report?
Are you wondering, “How can I get a credit report for my nanny or caregiver?” NannyVerify regrets they cannot provide access to individual credit reports via their website. Families desiring a senior caregiver or nanny credit report should contact a reputable credit reporting agency directly. Be advised, however, that all of the credit bureaus have tightened access to this information and will no longer accept residential based businesses (for us this means families) as users. Because of this added level of credit bureau security they are unable to offer these checks.
The recent economic downturn — and the resulting damage to credit reports and scores due to unemployment and foreclosures — have caused at least eleven states and many metropolitan areas to prohibiting employers from pulling credit reports or limiting how employers may use them to make hiring or other job decisions. As of March 1, 2017, the following states and cities currently limit employers’ use of credit information in employment: California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Chicago, Illinois, Maryland, Nevada, New York City, New York, Oregon, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Washington State and Washington, D.C.
Our recommendation would be if this is important to your job staffing (a personal assistant who will have access to your bank funds for example or a senior caregiver who helps with bill payment) you may request that the applicant obtain their own credit report directly.
