Keeping Employees Safe from Erroneous or Illegal Background Checks

Each day people are denied or delayed employment because of erroneous or illegal background checks. Our firm helps consumers who have suffered a delay, denial, or lost job due to inaccurate or unfair background checks. Thomasson PLLC can help if your background check contains inaccurate information, or if an employer failed to properly notify you of your rights.

Employee Rights Under FCRA

Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), potential employers may request background checks to inform their employment decisions. However, the FCRA provides specific legal requirements employers must follow when pursuing this option. For example, they must inform you of their intention to use a background check, and they must provide you with a copy of the report if they decide not to hire you. If the employer violates these legal obligations, you may have the right to pursue a legal claim against them and recover damages.

Building a Successful Claim

There are several reasons potential employees may take action against an employer. For example, if an employer denied you employment because of a credit report or background check containing inaccurate information, or if the report was wrongly obtained or shared with an unauthorized party, we can help you determine your legal rights and the best path to vindicate those rights. We also assist individuals whose employers failed to disclose they obtained and used a credit report. We are prepared to help you with whatever type of employment screening issue you may have.
