Have you been affected by errors or inaccurate information in a background check report? If inaccurate or harmful information has appeared in your background check report, you might be unable to:

  • Rent an apartment or secure other housing
  • Be hired for certain jobs (and in some cases, you may be terminated from an existing job)

You may be entitled to financial compensation:

If you believe inaccurate information contained in your background check report has prevented you from being able to obtain a job or apartment, or if you have been fired from an existing job due to background check errors, the company performing the background check and thus reporting the inaccurate information to employers and other entities may have violated the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). If a company such as Checkr, HireRight, or Samba Safety, among others, has performed a background check on you and reported inaccurate information about you to potential employers or housing providers, you may be entitled to financial compensation under the FCRA.

What should I do if my background check contained inaccurate information?

If you believe your background check contained errors or inaccuracies, it is important to speak to an experienced consumer attorney such as our attorneys at Raburn Kaufman to discuss your options under the FCRA.

Before speaking with an attorney, you should get a copy of your background check report from the employer or housing provider who requested the background check report from the third party provider. Our attorneys are available to review your background check report and talk through the errors appearing in the report during your consultation.
