Legal and Practical Background Check Considerations

Because placing the wrong person in the wrong position can lead to loss, litigation, and liability, employers use a variety of application and interview techniques. But they also realize the importance of verifying the information provided by their employment candidates.

At the same time, dozens of federal class action lawsuits have been filed against employers claiming violations of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). This continues a several-year trend of class action lawsuits that have resulted in payouts to applicants and employees, including those who suffered no harm from the defendant-employers’ actions. 

In this presentation, we will discuss the ways employers can verify their applicants claims while avoiding the most common causes of background check litigation.
