GoodHire Background Check | Consumer Attorneys

As a division of Inflection Risk Solutions, a company that offers employment and tenant screening solutions, GoodHire is a background check provider that specializes in employment background checks.

What is in a GoodHire background check?

What shows up in a GoodHire background check can vary depending on what is requested.  While the list below is not comprehensive, GoodHire background checks may contain the following:

  • Credit reports
  • Criminal records
  • Driving records
  • Drug screening
  • Education verification
  • Medical history
  • Social media checks

Your potential employer may request these or any number of other services depending on the field of work you are applying for. Your authorization is required before GoodHire can perform the background check. Employers typically ask candidates to sign an authorization form when they apply for the position, allowing the employer to initiate a background check. Your permission should always be attained before a background check commences.

How long does a GoodHire background check take?

GoodHire employment background checks can sometimes be performed in as little as one minute, but they also can take up to five days. The timing depends on the amount of information the employer is seeking.

While background checks are standard, the risk of errors resulting from instant results is present. Errors can often be attributed to mixed up files or outdated databases.

Did a GoodHire background check contain errors that cost you a job?

Aside from criminal history showing up in a background check, most candidates have little to worry about. However, mistakes can and do happen on background checks. According to the stipulations set forth in the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), GoodHire is required to ensure their information is accurate and up to date.

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.

Contact us at (800)604-0466 to find out if you have a case. Alternatively, you can fill out a free case review form on our website. If we find you do have a case, the consultation is also free. We will only get paid when you win your case.

How to handle GoodHire background check errors

Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, you may dispute errors contained in your GoodHire background screening.

If information from a background check is used against you, the employer is required to tell you.  They are also responsible for providing the contact information of the reporting company, a copy of the actual report, and a summary of your rights according under the FCRA.

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

  • Visit goodhire.com
  • Call 888-906-4284
  • Write a letter to GoodHire at P.O. Box 391403, Omaha, Nebraska, 68139

GoodHire will have 30 days to conduct an investigation into the report after you’ve filed a dispute. The investigation will either prove its information is correct or remove errors as necessary.

Can I sue GoodHire for background check errors?

In the event you missed out on a promotion, had a job opportunity delayed, or even lost your job due to inaccurate screening information, you may be able to sue GoodHire in a federal suit.
