- District Laws
Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA)
In order to set a standard for hiring policies, the federal government created the Fair Credit Reporting Act, or FCRA, which monitors and protects both employers and job candidates.
§24-148. Request of consumer report – Notice to subject of report
Our Take: Employers in Oklahoma must first provide written notice to the job applicant before they can request a consumer report. The employer must inform the applicant that a consumer report will be used. Further, the notice must include a box for the applicant to check if she or he would like to receive a free copy of his or her consumer report.
Ban-The-Box & Fair Hiring Laws
STATE LAWS — PUBLIC AND PRIVATE COMPANIES
Who must follow: This ban-the-box law applies only to state agency employers for the state of Oklahoma.
Timing of inquiry: State agencies in Oklahoma may not inquire into criminal history on the job application, unless a felony conviction would automatically render an applicant not qualified.
