After several years of litigation, in Connor v. First Student, Inc. the California Supreme Court decided that the California Investigative Consumer Reporting Agencies Act (“ICRAA”) was not unconstitutionally vague as applied to employment background checks. It reached this conclusion notwithstanding its finding that there is some overlap between the ICRAA and the California Consumer Credit Reporting Agencies Act (“CCRAA”). As such, employers and consumer reporting agencies must abide by both statutes where applicable.
