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 TransUnion ShareAble for Hires 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.
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
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.
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 employment background check report have already sued TRSSI and its TransUnion parent companies for FCRA violations. Pacer lists at least 16 federal civil lawsuits against TRSSI and many more against TransUnion, including many cases that allege violations of the FCRA due to improper employment screening reports and other improper consumer reports.
Many of those lawsuits allege that TRSSI or its TransUnion parent companies failed to properly protect personal information and identifying data including Social Security Numbers. Others allege that TRSSI or TransUnion falsely labeled consumers as terrorists or drug traffickers in consumer reports and/or did not allow consumers to dispute the false reports. Some of the lawsuits are similar tolawsuits against other employment background check companies that allege, for example, that the background check companies did not take reasonable steps to verify criminal background information and, as a result, falsely listed felony convictions, including expunged, outdated, or incorrect information, or misidentified the subject of the report. Others 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.
In December 2017, a federal district court judge upheld a $60 million jury verdict against TRSSI and TransUnion, LLC in a federal class action that alleged that the companies violated the FCRA by falsely tagging consumers as terrorists and drug traffickers in credit reports. Also in December 2017, TRSSI and TransUnion, LLC agreed to pay $8 million to settle a class action lawsuit that alleged that they violated the FCRA by disclosing “Alert List” information about consumers who had submitted rental applications to landlords
