Were You Harmed By False Information or Errors In Your Accudata Inc Report?

You may have a claim if a background check error cost you a job

Looking for a new job is stressful. There’s so much emphasis on developing the perfect resume and nailing the interview that little thought is given to an employment background check. More often than not, employers want to run a background check on a potential employee. They may want to check their criminal histories or simply verify the person’s job history that’s listed on their resume. When they do, they use a company like Accudata to produce a report on the potential new hire.

The thing is, people make mistakes. So do background screening companies. There are a number of ways an employment background check company – whether Accudata or another company – can deliver a report that may prevent you from getting the job. For example, they might transpose the digits of your social security number or include information that’s more than a decade old.

Thankfully, the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act protects you from employment background check mistakes. The FCRA mandates that an employer provides you with a standalone notice about your background check, and that the employer obtain your consent to a background check. Under the FCRA, you also have the right to dispute information that could prevent you from landing the job – and sue the background check company if they are derelict in their duties.

What are my Background Check Disclosure and Consent Rights?

A Summary of Your Rights Under the FCRA

Under the FCRA, a company like Accudata – or any other employment background check company – must obtain at attestation from the employer who uses their services. The attestation must say that the employer is incompliance with the disclosure and consent provisions of the FCRA.

An employer meets their consent requirements when they obtain your permission to run a background check. They meet their disclosure requirements when they a) provide you with a separate notification outlining their wish to run an employment background check; and b) notify you if they’re considering not hiring you based on the background check along with a copy of your report, the contact information for the employment background check company, and your rights under the FCRA.

Your Right to a Mistake-Free and Legally Compliant Report From Accudata Inc

Accuracy and compliance are two cornerstones of a fair employment background check. Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, a company like Accudata can’t report on information that is more than seven years old. The two exceptions are bankruptcy – which is reportable for ten years – and criminal convictions. This means that ancient debts that were sent to collection aren’t fair game. Neither are criminal convictions that have been expunged.

Your Right to Dispute an Inaccurate Report from Accudata

Missing out on a job opportunity because of a mistake on your employment background check is a tragedy. That’s why the FCRA requires that employers notify you if they are going to use a background report as the basis for denying you a job. When you receive that notice, you should also receive the contact information for the company that conducted the background search. You should contact both the company and the employer and dispute the inaccurate items. The employment background check company has 30 to investigate and correct any mistakes.

Your Right to Sue Accudata if there are Mistakes, Inaccurate, or Illegal Information in Your Report

If there are mistakes in your credit report that aren’t corrected and that prevent you from getting the job, the Fair Credit Reporting Act gives you the right to sue in federal court. If you sue and win, you could be awarded actual damages, statutory damages of up to $1,000, legal fees, and court costs. This is why legal representation shouldn’t cost you a dime out of pocket.

Actual Complaints Against Accudata Inc

It takes time to land a good job. You deserve to be treated fairly throughout the hiring process. People who haven’t been treated fairly because of mistakes in their employment background checks have sued the companies that produced those reports.

The allegations in FCRA lawsuits can be that the background check company didn’t respond to disputes in a timely manner. They may be that the background check included information that was prohibited by the FCRA – like an expunged conviction. They can be that the company did a shoddy job and mixed up people with similar names or social security numbers.
