Does a bad credit score make you a risky employee?

I do not think so, but it can be an indicator.  Taken alone, it would (IMHO) be an unfair discriminator against a potential employee.  However, it remains the employers perogative to use this as a criteria for employment.  Bigger picture, I think it’s another way that those on the edge of the financial abyss are discriminated against by the FICO system.

    Agree with Rob business has the right to assess people any way it chooses if it is legal. Just wonder about people that screw up or get screwed and are ostracized from the system when the economy is in a down turn. I suspect this only apply’s to Joe Blow cuz the administration appointed some non paying apples and Congress overcharges it’s Congressional credit cards and ruins our collective credit.
