On October 19-21, 2014, in Denver, CO, the National Association of Professional Background Screeners is hosting their 2014 Annual Conference.

The conference offers a diverse range of educational sessions ensuring that there’s something for the industry novice, the seasoned expert and everyone in between. Every attendee will be able to take away valuable information and resources to benefit their specific business goals.

The educational program offers general sessions and breakouts covering topics ranging from strategic business sessions, futuristic technology, legal issues, nuts and bolts “how-to” programs, international screening techniques, compliance guidelines, employment discrimination and what’s on the horizon for consumer reporting agencies, to name just a few.

Troutman Sanders partner, David Anthony, will be speaking on “Matching” Issues Under the FCRA: Compliance and Litigation Defense Advice. Multiple provisions of the FCRA place responsibility on consumer reporting agencies for “matching” any criminal or other records returned relative to the identified subject of the report. These provisions of the FCRA have generated substantial litigation (including many class actions), and they have, in turn, generated substantial debate about the nature of a consumer reporting agency’s obligation under such provisions. This session will discuss matching issues, from a compliance and litigation-defense perspective.
