The state of Kentucky has restrictions on what can be reported in a background screening report beyond what the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) dictates.
|Applicant/subject cannot be required to pay for a background check or a portion thereof||In Kentucky, per statute, it is "unlawful for any employer to require any employee or applicant for employment to pay the cost of a medical examination or the cost of furnishing any records required by the employer as a condition of employment."|
See the statute here for more information.
|Key Municipal Employment Restriction on Private Employers||Employers in Louisville have additional restrictions pursuant to Ordinance 066, Chapter 35 of the City Code.|
