Individuals have the right, upon written request made within a reasonable period of time (not to exceed 30 days) after receipt of notice to receive a written disclosure of the nature and scope of any investigation.
If a consumer investigative report is obtained and an adverse decision is made affecting an individual’s employment, Assistance League of Long Beach will provide to the individual (before making the adverse decision) a copy of the Investigative Consumer Report and a description in writing of the individual’s rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
If an employee or volunteer has been convicted of a violation or attempted violation or sex offense, Assistance League will notify parents/guardians of any minor who will be supervised or disciplined by the employee or volunteer at least ten days prior to the day that the employee or volunteer begins his/her duties or tasks.
