American DataBank Report is Inaccurate

Any company involved in background checks is bound to make mistakes. Their mistake can hold a heavy consequence on you, such as losing a potential job. To protect your personal information from being misrepresented, the Federal Trade Commission has passed the FCRA.

Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) provides regulations and guidelines for background checks and screening reports. It states that if any data in a screening report is false or misrepresented, then it is the responsibility of the screening organization to fix the errors within 30 days. The organization is also responsible for ensuring that you are not denied a job based on a false report. 

Moreover, the Act gives you the right to deny any background checks. You can also demand a copy of your screening report. Once you get your copy, scan through it to check if all the information is correct. If you report errors to the organization and they fail to correct them within 30 days, you are eligible to take legal action against them.
