Employers do not use credit scores. That fact was documented over a decade ago.
The New York Times states, "Employers don’t use credit scores in employment screening, but they can and do access credit reports."
And, Nerdwallet states that "your employer won’t actually see your credit score — just a modified version of your credit report."
Also, The Associated Press states, "While employers cannot get a person’s credit score, they can discover legal judgments or bankruptcies."
However, an article published by the Times last month falsely states, "FICO and VantageScore make different versions of scores that lenders, employers and landlords use to size up your credit habits." #2001N
