Misrepresented by General Information Services
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has passed the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) that gives you rights against companies like General Information Services. According to the FCRA, you have the right to receive a copy of your screening report. Once you receive it, you should scan through the document to ensure that none of the information about you is inaccurate.
If there are errors, you can dispute them directly with the credit reporting agency. The FCRA states that the agency is responsible for rectifying the errors within 30 days. If they fail to do so in 30 days, you have the right to take legal action against them. The credit reporting agency is also responsible if a potential employee loses a job based on a false screening report.
Moreover, the FCRA states that the credit reporting agency needs your consent before they can conduct a background check.
If any of the above is violated, you should take legal action.
