Final Notice Of Adverse Action

If after sending out the pre-adverse documents required, the employer intends to make the decision final, the employer must take one more step. Many employers find it difficult to believe that Congress intended that an applicant be notified twice, both before an adverse action and after. However, the law clearly requires two notices. This is also the interpretation of the Federal Trade Commission Staff. The purpose is to give job applicants the maximum opportunity to correct any incomplete or inaccurate reports that could affect their chances of employment. The employer must send the applicant a Final Notice of Adverse Action informing the job applicant that the employer has made a final decision; along with another copy of the FTC form”
