What is Precise Hire ?
Precise Hire, Inc. was founded in 2000, and is based in Texas. The company offers employment background screening services across a variety of industries. Its website informs site visitors that “PreciseHire was founded by a top management team with expertise in Human Resources, Staffing, General Administration, Employment Screening, Telecommunication and Internet industries.” The company claims to “provide accurate information quickly.”
The company provides virtually every type of screening and background check. Its pre-employment offerings include criminal and sex offendersearches, education and employment verifications, motor vehicle records, credit reports, drug and health screenings, reference and license checks, and Social Security number tracing.
They also offer new hire and post-employment screening. This includes identity and immigration status verifications and random drug testing.
Whether you get hired or promoted often depends on the information learned from an employment background check. A background check can come in many shapes and sizes. It may be as simple as verifying your social security number. Or it may include a detailed report of your credit and criminal history, or even information gathered from interviews of your friends and neighbors about your character and reputation.
Whatever the scope of the background check, the FCRA sets strict standards for how employers and background check companies get consent for and conduct background checks, and what they can do with the information they find.
If a background check company like Precise Hire fails to meet those standards, the FCRA gives you rights.

What are my Background Check Disclosure and Consent Rights?
You have a right to know if an employer will use information from a background check against you and an employer cannot obtain background check information without your express written consent.
A background check company cannot hand over your information to an employer unless the employer certifies that: (1) it has “clearly and conspicuously” disclosed to you in a separate document that it may obtain a background check; (2) you have authorized it to get the background check; and (3) it will provide you with advance notice of any adverse action based in any part on the background check report, a copy of the report, and a summary of your rights under the FCRA.
Your Right to an Accurate and Legally-Compliant Report
A background check company must take reasonable steps to ensure its report is as accurate as possible.
The FCRA also puts limits on the negative information a background check report can include. A report cannot list civil suits, judgments, arrest records, paid tax liens, accounts in collection or most other negative information (except criminal convictions) after 7 years, or bankruptcies after 10 years. It also cannot list expunged convictions
Your Right to Dispute Dispositions and Discrepancies on an Unfair Report from Precise Hire
If you don’t get a job because of information in a background check report, you are entitled to a copy of the report. You also have the right to dispute the report if it has errors or includes information it shouldn’t.
If you dispute a report, the background check company must investigate and correct any errors within 30 days.
Your Right to Sue Precise Hire if your report includes mistakes, inaccurate or illegal info
If you lost out on a job or promotion because a background check report included inaccurate or illegal information, you may be able to sue in federal court. If you sue and win, you may be entitled to your actual damages or statutory damages up to $1,000, plus punitive damages, attorneys’ fees, and costs.
Hardworking people just like you who lost job opportunities due to an inaccurate or unfair Precise Hire employment background check report have already sued the company for FCRA violations. Justia lists at least one federal civil lawsuits against Precise Hire that allege violations of the FCRA due to an improper employment screening report.
For example, on July 7, 2015, a consumer filed a class action complaint against Precise Hire in the federal district court for the Eastern District of Texas for violating the FCRA in connection with employment background checks completed by them for Health Source Global Staffing about complainant and others similarly situated for employment purposes. The complainant alleged that Precise Hire prepared background check reports and provided them to Health Source Global Staffing for employment purposes without obtaining the FCRA-required certifications from Health Source Global Staffing that it complied with its own FCRA obligations. The complainant sought statutory damages for herself and others similarly situated.
This case is similar to FCRA lawsuits filed by other complainants against companies like Precise Hire. Many of those lawsuits allege that background check companies failed to take reasonable steps to verify criminal background information and, as a result, falsely listed felony convictions, including expunged, outdated, or misidentified the subject of the report. Some complaints allege that background check reports contained inaccurate educational, work, driving, credit or other personal information that the background check company was not responsive or did not properly handle disputes about inaccurate information. Some complainants have filed their lawsuits as class action complaints, on behalf of themselves and similarly situated people.
