Many companies this year have been hauled into court for violating employment laws related to background checks. The worst part is, the people at these companies who oversee background checks had no idea the violations were taking place. They sincerely believed their background screening program was 100% compliant.
Unfortunately, the majority of people who oversee their company’s background check programs have never been fully and properly educated about key provisions of the Fair Credit Reporting Act, and even minor technical violations which may seem fairly inoccuous can lead to a costly and drawn-out legal battle that hurts the company financially, harms employee morale and erodes customer confidence.
