Audit Your Deposit Accounts for Discrimination – It’s Time According to the CFPB! Webinar

July 7, 2022 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm

On March 16, 2022, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) announced changes to its supervisory operations to better protect families and communities from illegal discrimination, including situations where fair lending laws may not apply. In the course of examining banks’ and other companies’ compliance with consumer protection rules, the CFPB will scrutinize discriminatory conduct that violates the federal prohibition against unfair practices.

Denying access to a checking account because the individual is of a particular race could be an unfair practice even in those instances where ECOA may not apply.

The CFPB will examine for discrimination in all consumer finance markets, including credit, servicing, collections, consumer reporting, payments, remittances, and deposits.

What does that mean to you? Do we discriminate in the deposit area? Let’s run our that audit and see what we do that could be unfair!
