In testifying, you engaged in this exchange:
SENATOR [Edith] PRAGUE: So, Kia, when somebody gets a background check on a prospective employee, if they ask for a criminal background check that’s all they get is a criminal background check, or they get the whole package, the criminal background check and the credit score.
KIA MURRELL: It depends on who that employer is and how that employer is conducting his background.
SENATOR PRAGUE: So it can vary.
KIA MURRELL: It can vary a lot.
What indicates that background checks on prospective employees include credit scores?
