Nevada Becomes The Tenth State To Prohibit The Use Of Consumer Credit Reports Or Other Credit Information For Employment Purposes
Attorneys: Pamela Q. Devata, Kendra K. Paul
Last month we reported to you how Colorado became the ninth state to prohibit employers from using credit information for employment purposes. Nevada has just become the tenth state.
Senator Parks introduced Nevada’s Senate Bill 127 on February 18, 2013, which was intended to, among other things, “[p]rohibit employers from conditioning employment on a consumer credit report or other credit information.” Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval signed the bill into law on May 25, 2013 and it goes into effect on October 1, 2013.
