    Default Background Checks for a Job

    Is there a 7 year law about a company doing background checks in Texas?

    What do you mean? You mean, are employers like credit agencies, barred from checking your academic and employment credentials if the date you recite is more than 7 years before you apply? No.

    Default background checks

    Let me rephrase my question. Is there a limit to how far an employer can go back when conducting a background check?

    Not that I can find. You can take a look at Texas statutes here.
