S. Preston Ricardo Quoted by Portfolio

Litigation partner S. Preston Ricardo was quoted by Portfolio on the growing use of credit checks in the employment process.  In the article, Mr. Ricardo explained that employers utilizing credit checks are trying to protect themselves, hoping to ascertain a potential employee’s judgment, responsibility and propensity for theft.  He stressed, however, that the use of such credit reports can sometimes cross the line, and that employers do need to proceed carefully.
