Background Check Errors
The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) protects consumers from more that erroneous TransUnion, Experian, and Equifax credit reports. It also protects consumers against erroneous reports such as consumer reports that are sold to employers.
These reports are used by many companies to screen existing and potential employees. Thus, a background check report for employment that is inaccurate and results in a termination or failure to being hired may be a violation of your rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
Since the Fair Credit Reporting Act amended the requirements of conducting employee background checks in early 2013, compliance has never been more important. The FCRA also regulates the companies who sell the reports in addition to the employers who use them. Knowing your rights is the best way to ensure your protection from false employment reports.
