My Employer wants me to sign a document with this clause in it. "I herby authorize Science Applications International Corporation ("SAIC"), and/or any service provider or entity directed by SAIC, to obtain consumer reports about me regarding my education background, subject to applicable law. I further understand and agree that such consumer reports may be obtained now or later from time to time without further notice to me and for so long as I am an employed by SAIC, all as SAIC in its sole discretion determines is necessary or advisable."
I am refusing to sign on the grounds that it gives the company unlimited access to my personel privat information. They say this is to verify my education, which I have no problem with, but why do they need to have unlimited access after they have verified my education?
Additionally Ca. code 1786 states that the employeer has to state which company is going to perform the research/check before the document is signed, and mine has not.
