Want to know more about your rights when a company does a background check on you — specifically, your rights under the FCRA (Fair Credit Reporting Act)?
We’ll go over this decision — — Helwig v Concentrix Corporation from the Northern District of Ohio which is a decision issued March 26, 2021, by Senior District Judge Christopher Boyko. This is an excellent opinion I think you’ll enjoy reading.
Mainly focused on “standing” but it explains a lot about the FCRA and background checks.
Specifically, if a potential employer rejects you, when do you have to receive the background report? Before or after the “adverse action” by the potential employer?
Hope you enjoy!
