We are pleased to announce that Troutman Sanders attorneys, David Anthony, Cindy Hanson, and Timothy St. George will be presenting during the 2020 Professional Background Screening Association (PBSA) Mid-Year Conference in Arlington, VA from April 19-21, 2020. The Mid-Year Legislative & Regulatory Conference is held each year in the spring. The focus is on regulation, legislation, education, and compliance related to the background screening industry.

On Monday April 20th at 10:30am, David, Cindy, and Timothy will be hosting the panel, “Background Screening Regulatory Developments: 2020 and Beyond”. This discussion will provide insight on the effects of the CFPB report titled Market Snapshot: Background Screening Reports, published on October 3, 2019 and the subsequent FTC and CFPB joint workshop in December 2019. The CFPB report highlights the increased demand for background screenings by employers as well as consumer challenges that may arise from their use given the vast array of data sources and consumer reporting agencies. The workshop explored issues affecting the accuracy of both traditional credit reports and employment and tenant background screening reports.
