What Should You Do If the Report from Hirease Contains Errors?

Employment screening agencies such as Hirease are prone to making errors especially when people have the same or similar information that gets mixed up.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has prepared the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) that protects potential employees from false information reported by such organizations.

The FCRA states that if any of the data reported in a screening report is inaccurate or misrepresented, then, the screening company is liable to make the necessary changes within 30 days. 

The FCRA also states that it is the responsibility of the organization to make sure that the potential tenant does not lose a potential job due to misrepresentation in the report.

Moreover, you have the right to deny a background check and you are entitled to receive a copy of the screening report along with a summary of your rights protected under the FCRA by the credit reporting agency.

If any of your rights listed above have been violated you might be eligible to take legal action.
