Were You Harmed By False Information or Errors In Your Trak-1 Report?
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 Trak 1 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.
You Received A Pre-Adverse Action Notice From A Potential Employer. What Are Your Legal Rights?
By law, anyone who uses the information in a background check report to screen job applicants must let any applicant know when they didn’t get the job based on the information in the report.
This means you have a right to see what is in the background check. Depending on your specific circumstances, you may also be able to sue the company that requested the background check and rejected your application, or the company that issued the background check report.
Your Right to a Mistake Free 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 Trak-1 Report
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 Trak-1 if your report includes inaccurate or illegal info
If you lost out on a job or promotion because a Trak-1background 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 Trak-1 employment background check report have already sued the company for FCRA violations. Justia lists at least 2 federal civil lawsuits against Trak-1, both of which allege violations of the FCRA due to improper employment screening reports.
For example, in November 2017, a consumer sued Trak-1 in the federal district court for the Middle District of Tennessee for violating the FCRA in connection with an employment background check and alleged he lost employment opportunities and suffered emotional distress, reputational harm and other damages. The complainant alleged that he applied for a job with Home Instead. As part of the application process, Home Instead obtained a background employment check on the complainant from Trak-1. The complainant alleged that Trak-1 failed to use reasonable procedures to ensure the maximum accuracy possible of the report as the FCRA requires. According to the complainant, Trak-1 falsely listed a felony conviction for aggravated assault on his report. The complainant did not get the job with Home Instead as a result of the inaccurate background check report.

I underwent a interview with bgfamily in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and I was disappointed in the fact that their was something on my background that prevented me for getting the position. My recruiter said it was a matter of felonies, that I had. And I wanted to know if ALL existing cases are closed…or dismissed by ruling of judge. Why can’t I start immediately for my planned projects that my recruiter assigned me?
