An employer would not be able to use information from a credit check to decide whether they want to hire, fire or promote a worker, with some exceptions, if a bill passed last week by the New Hampshire House becomes law.

House Bill 293 would prohibit employers from using credit history in employment decisions, or suffer a Labor Department fine, unless required to use such checks by law or if the check is “substantially related to the employee’s current or potential job.”
