Employment Screening Resources Background Checks

Employment Screening Resources (ESR) is located in Novato, CA and performs background screenings for employers seeking pre-employment screening, employee onboarding, and post-hire background screening solutions.

What is in an ESR background check?

While not restrained to the list below, ESR background checks often cover the following:

  • Civil records
  • Credit reports
  • Criminal history
  • Driving records
  • Sanctions and watchlist checks
  • Social media screening
  • Social Security number tracing
  • Verification of employment, education, and references

Typically, candidates are asked to consent to a background screening when initially applying for a job opening. Your permission is required before the screening can start. While the list above contains common items in screenings, the overall scope of the report will be determined by various factors, such as the industry you are applying to work in.

What if my ESR background check was wrong?

The unfortunate truth is that employment background check errors are not uncommon. Errors can often be attributed to mixed up files or outdated databases. Both employers and employees can be harmed when this occurs because it can lead to quality candidates being rejected for a job or promotion, delayed employment, and other missed opportunities. When an employer uses continual background monitoring, employees can get fired as a result of inaccurate screenings.

If you believe a job opportunity was denied, a start date was delayed, or you were denied a promotion due to inaccurate reporting, you may have a legal case against the employer, as well as ESR Background Checks. Any qualifying damages could be significant.

Dispute ESR background check errors

You have the legal right to dispute inaccuracies that appear in your screening, according to the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA).

If an error in a background check is used against you, the employer must notify you about it, as well as provide a copy of the report and the contact information of the reporting company.  

You can dispute errors with ESR in a number of ways:

  • Call (888)999-4474
  • Write a letter to ESR at 7110 Redwood Blvd., Novato, California 94945

You also will receive a free copy of the report when you file a dispute with ESR. After challenging or disputing your ESR background check, ESR will have 30 days to investigate and either correct errors or affirm their report.

Can I Sue ESR for background check errors?

If you’ve lost employment, a job prospect, or a promotion, or if you had a start date delayed based on inaccurate background checks or credit reports, you may have a case to file a lawsuit being filed in federal court.

Lawsuits against ESR are not uncommon. One plaintiff suffered from inaccurate background reporting prepared by ESR, which led to her being denied a job opportunity. The report in question contained a felony conviction that was previously reduced to a misdemeanor.
