What Should you do if Your Screening Report is Flawed?
Making mistakes on a screening report is bound to happen. If it happens to you, you might lose a potential job or promotion. This can impact your future endeavors as well. To protect your career and your rights, you should dispute any errors directly to Pre-employ.com.
The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) states that the screening agency is liable to correct errors within 30 days, once a dispute has been made. The agency should also ask you before conducting a background check. You can ask the agency to give you a copy of your screening report to check for errors.
You should scan through your report to check for errors. If there are and they did not resolve it within 30 days, you should take them to court for the damages they have done.
