What Should You Do If the Report from Applicant Insight Contains Errors?
Employment screening agencies such as Applicant Insight are prone to making errors, especially when people have the same or similar information that gets mixed up.
The good news is that 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 deceiving, then it is the responsibility of the revealing organization to make the necessary alterations within 30 days.
The FCRA also states that it is the responsibility of the organization to make sure that the potential tenant does not get rejected due to the misrepresentation in the report.
Moreover, you have the right to deny a background check, if a background check was conducted without your consent, you might be eligible to take legal action.
