spc serasa dirty name debt pay off

Taís Targa, who has already worked in the field of recruitment, reveals how a person with a dirty name is evaluated by the Human Resources of a company

The dirty name of a candidate for a certain vacancy has always been a taboo in selection processes. Although we do not know what is really going on, which is why it is illegal, reports that this practice actually happens in this environment. See what Taís Targa has to say about this issue, as she has a lot of experience in the Recruitment and Selection area and ended up going through this situation a few times. Interesting article that can clarify, reveal and demystify some of these reports.

“At the beginning of the selection process, the candidate signed a term in which he declared that he was aware that we would make several inquiries with the intention of verifying aspects involving his name and CPF. So, we used to consult not only credit protection agencies, such as Serasa and SPC, but we also surveyed the candidate's file, with regard to criminal records, for example. When we found something, we didn't delete it. In fact, this was not the recruiter's decision. Our role was to make a report and send it to the HR of the company for which we were making the selection. It was up to them to decide whether or not to keep the candidate in the process.

Everything was done as clearly as possible. In situations where the candidate was discarded from the process, it was common for us to get in touch and inform the reason why this happened. Today, observing the market, I realize that our conduct at the time was very transparent and respectful, despite the legal risk we ran for doing so. What I've noticed is that even though time has passed, companies continue to check the people they hire, but they don't let them know. I won't go into this here on merit, on the fact that companies do this without the candidate's knowledge, as this is not the focus of the article. The fact is that, when finding negative information on behalf of a professional, the company can:

  • Contract.

Despite knowing about the denial, the company recognizes that there is a financial crisis and that many Brazilians, due to this, have not been able to keep their names clean.

  • Hire, depending on the area of ​​expertise of the professional.

It is common that, if the vacancy is for the financial/accounting area, such as in banks and audits, for example, people whose names are on credit protection records are not hired. These areas deal directly with money, budget, etc. and this type of organization tends to be more conservative in that sense.

  1.  Do not hire.

Even if the professional is excellent, there are companies that simply do not hire people with the “dirty” name. Of course, there are companies that don't even check. But you have no way of knowing whether or not they carry out this type of consultation. If you have your name negative right now, it's not the end of the world. Don't beat yourself up for what you've been through. Now it's time to try to resolve the situation.

Start by analyzing whether you can, at this moment, seek a renegotiation of this debt (s). If you can't, keep looking for your replacement and your focus will be on companies that don't make inquiries of this type.

If the debt is with banks or other financial institutions and you have between 10 and 20% of the amount you owe, know that there are great possibilities of being able to renegotiate, but you need to file an action. The agreements signed between lawyers and these institutions have been very successful. The good thing is that in a few days your name is “cleared”. See article by Dr. Victor Benghi Del Claro on this matter.

The crisis scenario made these companies much more flexible. After all, the Brazilian debt has unfortunately only grown in recent years.

If you're concerned about paying your attorney's fees, it's good to know that most attorneys only charge amounts at the end of the case and usually a percentage of the amount that was renegotiated.

My tip is to always hire someone you trust, as the solution to processes of this type also depends on the agility of the professional.”
