Princeton Background Check Lawyers

Representing Victims in False Background Check Claims in West Virginia

What is an Employment Report?

Increasingly, employers are using consumer reports to screen job applicants and make promotion decisions in all types of industries, from banking to trucking and food service. These reports are referred to as employment reports, background checks, or background screening reports.

They contain information about a consumer’s past work history, criminal record history, public records, and other information. Unfortunately, like traditional credit reports, employment reports are often riddled with common reporting errors that can cause a person to be denied a potential job, or even lose an existing one. The damage can be very significant, especially in a tight job market

What rights do consumers have against false employment reports?

Fortunately, the law regulates both the companies that sell employment reports as well as the employers who use them. The law protects consumers in the following ways:

  • Requires that employment reports meet the standard of maximum possible accuracy
  • Requires employers to get a consumer’s permission before obtaining a background report
  • Requires employers to provide to the consumer a copy of the report and a summary of their FCRA rights before taking adverse action (such as not hiring an applicant or firing an employee)
  • Requires employers to notify consumers when a job is denied or terminated due to an employment report
  • Permits consumers to review and dispute inaccurate information in an employment report
