We at SambaSafety remain dedicated to our customers, working for them in everything we do. Day in and day out, we work to solve problems, including those not within the scope of our four walls.
Part of our service to our customers is finding commonly held pain points, monitor the regulatory and legislative environment and inform our customers when changes occur.
We’ve got good news – SB134 (i.e. a bill) was signed into law. If you take a look, you’ll notice the bill description is as follows: “adopting omnibus legislation relative to civil actions and criminal liability.”
While that sounds very technical, you may be asking yourself – “what does this actually mean?”
What the bill does for SambaSafety customers
Chances are, if you’re reading this, you have wrestled with the administrative burden of using a New Hampshire release form requiring a notary. Whether you’re a partner or customer, you’ll be thrilled to know that a notary is no longer required for Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) employer releases, effective immediately.
If you’re a customer who has a standard form FCRA client release that is pushed electronically to employees as they’re onboarded, this can now be done in New Hampshire. Consistent FCRA rules to keep such information for three years still stands.
This brings New Hampshire in line with other states as far as the requirements for the standard FCRA form of release.
