What Kinds Of Inaccurate Information Does Checkr Report In Its Background Checks?
When Checkr reports criminal record information, motor vehicle records, professional licensing information, and other personal data to employers, it sometimes reports inaccurate information or information that is not allowed to be included in a report under federal law, including under the Fair Credit Reporting Act. Sometimes it reports a criminal record that belongs to someone with the same name as a candidate. Sometimes it reports a motor vehicle record showing a conviction when the record should show a “not guilty” finding. And sometimes it reports non-conviction criminal charges and arrests that are more than seven years old. While these are merely examples, they can cause real harm when Checkr wrongly includes them in background checks. Fortunately, when Checkr reports this information to an employer, there are several avenues for individuals to fix those errors and to stand up for their rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
How Can A Background Check Lawyer Help To Fix An Error On A Checkr Background Check?
