No. Due to the nature of the daycare business, you do not need to tell your applicants that you are going to run a DaycareJumpers.com report.
In accordance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act, if your request returns negative information about that person (such as a daycare-related collection, delinquent childcare payment, etc.), and you decide not to provide care for that person's child, you MUST tell your applicant that the information listed with DaycareJumpers.com contributed to your decision.
At that point, you are legally required to tell the applicant how to contact us, so that they may request a copy of the report currently on file in our system. This requirement is also listed in the DaycareJumpers.com membership agreement.
Note: While you do not have to tell your applicants that you are going to use DaycareJumpers.com to access their daycare history, many members who choose to do so.
They often include information about DaycareJumpers.com in their daycare contracts and policies. Applicants who have something to hide (like a daycare-related collection, delinquent childcare payment, etc.) will be discouraged by this information. They will also begin to realize that they cannot continue to "hop" from daycare to daycare because DaycareJumpers.com is keeping an eye on them.
