DISCLOSURE REGARDING BACKGROUND INVESTIGATION
FedEx Ground Package System, Inc. (“the Company”) may obtain information about you for qualification purposes, as that phrase is defined and broadly interpreted under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, from a third party consumer reporting agency. Thus, you may be the subject of a “consumer report” and/or an “investigative consumer report” which may include information about your character, general reputation, personal characteristics, and/or mode of living, and which can involve personal interviews with sources such as your neighbors, friends, or associates. These reports may contain information regarding your criminal history, social security verification, motor vehicle records (“driving records”), verification of your education or employment history, or other background checks. You have the right, upon written request made within a reasonable time, to request whether a consumer report has been run about you, and disclosure of the nature and scope of any investigative consumer report and to request a copy of your report. Please be advised that the nature and scope of the most common form of investigative consumer report obtained with regard to candidates for employment purposes is an investigation into your education and/or employment history conducted by InfoMart, 1582 Terrell Mill Road, Marietta, GA 30067, 800-800-3774, or another outside organization. The scope of this notice and authorization is all-encompassing, however, allowing the Company to obtain from any outside organization all manners of consumer reports and investigative consumer reports now and throughout the course of your provision of services to the Company to the extent permitted by law. As a result, you should carefully consider whether to exercise your right to request disclosure of the nature and scope of any investigative consumer report.
