buddy of mine just got fired for his credit.
He was a lab courier shipping urine samples and what not.
well he is also recently seperated an dhis wife kept th ecar,under th eaggrement that she pays for the car and she keeps it but it was in both her and his name.
she stoped paying on it got it repoed and once that loan default hit his credit he was screwed. took a few months but when they did a follow up credit check they fired him stating he was no longer eligable for employment based on a background check.
is it right? not really depending on the job.
bank tellers,armed private security, emergency first responders and police these kinds of jobs I say make sure they are who they say they are and make sure there not going to have money issues, but a normal civvy job I dont get why they do this. I have been turned down alot of jobs that I was perfectly qualified for based on some shoddy credit.
they were accepting of everything else on my record but credit they cant overlook,weird
Maybe he can get a good attorney and sue for wrongful termination?[/quote]
I think hes trying to go that route,
but I think its in the stuff he signed that a condition of employment was to have no debt in collections.
but that was pre-employment I didnt know they could run periodic checks on you specialy when an inquiry lowers your credit score.
he should have placed flags on his report where no one can check
