The Fair Credit Reporting Act in Wisconsin
Wisconsin Fair Employment Act (WFEA) which applies to all other aspects of employment such as discrimination and the handling of disabilities, prohibits employers, except those filling bonded positions, from asking job applicants about arrests not resulting in convictions, unless the charges are currently pending. Furthermore, employers may not discharge or deny employment solely because of an arrest record.
Wisconsin also has its own laws to apply towards credit repair organizations – those companies that offer to help you fix your credit or get a better score. This statute that governs those companies that consider themselves “credit repairers” and those companies must follow strict rules for providing disclosures to consumers and allowing consumers to opt out of a contract.
