Pre-Employment Background Checks Frequently Asqued Questions (FAQs)

If an applicant is new to this country or her on a work visa are we obligated to conduct a background investigation in their home country?

No, you are not obligated to conduct an investigation in a foreign country, which can often prove impractical or cost-prohibitive. One alternative is to request a prospective employee’s visa file under the federal Freedom Of Information ACT, which often contains a fair amount of background information.

What do we do if the candidate insists that the information contained in the background report is not accurate?

If the candidate is denied employment due solely to the negative background check, the candidate should be given an opportunity to dispute the information and prove that it is incorrect. Typically, the candidate will dispute the information with a credit reporting agency or other source of the allegedly bad information.

I only have a few employees. Does the FCRA apply to me?

Yes. The FCRA does not distinguish between a small business owner and large corporation. If the information you seek on a applicant or current employee meets the definition of a consumer report and the information is compiled by a consumer reporting agency, the FCR applies no matter how many employees you have.
