Section 607(b) of the Fair Credit Reporting Act requires CRAs to “follow reasonable procedures to assure maximum possible accuracy”. Background Research Inc. individually reviews any potential “hits” for accuracy prior to reporting.
Turn around times (TATs) all depend upon the type of searches you request. Some states offer resources that produce same-day results. Others take additional time to search for records, verify, and return their findings. Typically, one to five business days are normal for a completed report.
Yes. The FCRA requires that people who consent to a background check be given a document that describes their rights titled “A Summary of Your Rights Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act.” This document states that the job applicants have a right to know if information in the consumer report has been used against them. It explains how a person can get a free copy of their report, dispute the findings of the consumer report, and act against agencies that violate the FCRA. For more information on applicants rights regarding consumer reporting, please refer to the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
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. The employer must follow the FCRA adverse action regulations before denying employment.
The background verification is a key milestone to helping candidates get hired. Employers engage Background Research Inc. to conduct background verifications and consumer reports.
