What is Chane Solutions ?
Chane Solutions is the trade name used by Prana Technologies, LLC since 2006 to operate an employment background screening company based in Pennsylvania. Chane Solutions boasts that it “is a nationwide leader in criminal background screening and drug testing services” that firmly believes “staying compliant and conducting proper due diligence during the hiring process is a first priority.” According to its website, the company’s “team members possess decades of background screening and drug testing knowledge” and the company “has distinguished itself as a leader in managing pre-employment screening programs.”
Chane Solutions conducts employment background checks for a number of industries, including financial services, call centers, education, healthcare, hospitality, and manufacturing. In the course of conducting background checks, the company does social security number traces, which produces name and address histories. They use those histories to check criminal records on the county, state, and federal levels, as well as check sex offender databases. Chane Solutions also runs credit checks, verifies eligibility to work in the U.S., and motor vehicle records, among others.
Successfully landing a new job requires focus. Initially, your attention is on submitting a stellar resume and securing and acing an interview. Chances are, you don’t even consider the possibility of an employment background check. The truth is, employers often require background checks prior to offering a candidate a position. They may want to verify that the information on your resume is correct or take a deeper dive to avoid potential problems – like embezzlement or lawsuits – down the road. More often than not, employers don’t do their own background checks. Instead, they hire companies like Chane Solutions to do that work.
In a perfect world, all of the information about a potential employee would come together so that an employer could get a correct picture of the candidate. The truth is messier. Everyone – including background check companies – make mistakes. It doesn’t matter whether Chane Solutions is doing the screening or another company takes on the task. The mistakes made can range from pulling the records of someone with a similar name, transposing a social security number, or including information that’s a dozen years 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?
Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, Chane Solutions – or any other background check company – must ask the employer to verify that they complied with the FCRA with regard to its disclosure and consent provisions.
According to the FCRA, consent means that the employer has obtained your permission to run an employment background check on you. Disclosure means that they give you a separate notice indicating that they want to run the background check, and that they notify you if they plan to reject your application based on the background check. If they plan to reject your application, they must provide you with the name and contact information for the background check company, the background report itself, and information about your right to dispute the report.
Your Right to an Accurate and Legally-Compliant Report
The federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) provides you with certain rights regarding your employment background check. The purpose is to ensure the report’s accuracy and that the report doesn’t dive too far into your past. Chane Solutions can look at many facets of your life, but with a few exceptions, they can’t go back more than seven years. The exceptions are that any non-expunged criminal convictions can be included and that a bankruptcy can be listed for ten years. This means, for example, that a civil lawsuit from a decade ago can’t be included, nor can debts that were in collection a dozen years ago.
Your Right to Dispute an Inaccurate Report from Chane Solutions
An inaccurate employment background check report can derail your chances of landing a position. The Fair Credit Reporting Act acknowledges this by requiring employers to send what’s called a “pre-adverse action notice.” In other words, if your background report surfaces something that would prevent them from hiring you, the FCRA says that the employer must tell you that, and provide you with your background check, your rights to dispute the background check, and the contact information for the background check company. When you dispute an item on your background check report, the company that produced the report – whether Chane Solutions or another company – has 30 days to look into it and correct any errors.
Your Right to Sue Chane Solutions 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.
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 lawsuits brought under the FCRA sometimes allege that the background check company mixed people up, providing information for someone with a similar or the same name instead of the person applying for the job. Other times, the legal complaints say that the background check company listed information – like expunged convictions or old debts – that are prohibited by law. Sometimes, the allegation revolves around how the company handled – or didn’t handle – a dispute to the background check.
