In order to take Pre-Adverse Action on a file, you must have the "View Reports" permission AND you cannot have the "Restrict Review Process" permission.
To take Pre-Adverse Action on the report, you will navigate to the report-results view of the file. From there you will see several different drop-downs to choose from:

When you issue Pre-Adverse Action through the Verified First Portal, the candidate will receive a full summary of their rights, a consumer copy of the report, and Verified First's contact information so they can reach out to Verified First if they have any questions about, or would like to dispute, anything on the report. In order to access the candidate's consumer copy, the candidate will be required to enter identifying information to help protect the security of their report:
The file owner will receive an email seven calendar days after issuing Pre-Adverse Action notifying them that they may now issue Adverse Action if they would like to. If the File Owner would like to receive an email each day for the seven days letting them know how many days they have left before they can take Adverse Action, the system can be configured as such (contact Client Services to have this enabled for your account or user).
