I commonly view credit reports as a part of my job. I can say first that all the reports I see contain a birthdate as part of the identifying information. I also see the number of errors in reports. Any tool that is routinely inaccurate should not be used to screen potential employees. Further, until qualitative research has been done that shows a distinct correlation between information shown on a credit report and job performance, including tendency toward fraud or other criminal behavior, credit reports should not be used as a screening tool. Employers perceive a validity to the tool that in fact does not exist.
