Report from National Background Data Contains Errors

Pre-employment screening agencies such as National Background Data are prone to making errors. This usually happens due to outdated databases or mixed files under similar names. 

Their negligence can be quite costly as you can lose a potential job. However, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has prepared the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) that protects potential employees from false information reported by such organizations.

If any of the data in a screening report is false or misrepresented, it is the responsibility of the screening organization to fix those errors within 30 days. 

The FCRA also states that it is the responsibility of the organization to make sure that the potential employee does not get rejected due to the misrepresentation in the report. Even if the hiring process gets delayed, the screening agency will be liable.

You are also entitled to receive a copy of your screening report and a summary of your rights under the FCRA. Moreover, you have the right to deny a pre-employment background check.
