Were You Harmed By False Information or Errors In Your CoreLogic Report?

You may have a claim if a background check error cost you a job

Whether you get hired or promoted often depends on the information learned from an employment background check. A background check can come in many shapes and sizes. It may be as simple as verifying your social security number. Or it may include a detailed report of your credit and criminal history, or even information gathered from interviews of your friends and neighbors about your character and reputation.

Whatever the scope of the background check, the FCRA sets strict standards for how employers and background check companies get consent for and conduct background checks, and what they can do with the information they find.

If a background check company like CoreLogic fails to meet those standards, the FCRA gives you rights.

What are my Background Check Disclosure and Consent Rights?

A Summary of Your Rights Under the FCRA

You have a right to know if an employer will use information from a background check against you and an employer cannot obtain background check information without your express written consent.

A background check company cannot hand over your information to an employer unless the employer certifies that: (1) it has “clearly and conspicuously” disclosed to you in a separate document that it may obtain a background check; (2) you have authorized it to get the background check; and (3) it will provide you with advance notice of any adverse action based in any part on the background check report, a copy of the report, and a summary of your rights under the FCRA.

You Received A Pre-Adverse Action Notice From A Potential Employer. What Are Your Legal Rights?

By law, anyone who uses the information in a background check report to screen job applicants must let any applicant know when they didn’t get the based on the information in the report.

This means you have a right to see what is in the background check. Depending on your specific circumstances, you may also be able to sue the company that requested the background check and rejected your application, or the company that issued the background check report

Your Right to a Mistake Free and Legally-Compliant Report From CoreLogic Inc

A background check company must take reasonable steps to ensure its report is as accurate as possible.

The FCRA also puts limits on the negative information a background check report can include. A report cannot list civil suits, judgments, arrest records, paid tax liens, accounts in collection or most other negative information (except criminal convictions) after 7 years, or bankruptcies after 10 years. It also cannot list expunged convictions

Your Right to Dispute Dispositions and Discrepancies on an Unfair Report from CoreLogic

If you don’t get a job because of information in a background check report, you are entitled to a copy of the report. You also have the right to dispute the report if it has errors or includes information it shouldn’t.

If you dispute a report, the background check company must investigate and correct any errors within 30 days.

Your Right to Sue CoreLogic if your report includes mistakes, inaccurate or illegal info

If you lost out on a job or promotion because a background check report included inaccurate or illegal information, you may be able to sue in federal court. If you sue and win, you may be entitled to your actual damages or statutory damages up to $1,000, plus punitive damages, attorneys’ fees, and costs.

Actual Complaints Against CoreLogic

Hardworking people just like you who lost job opportunities due to an inaccurate or unfair CoreLogic employment background check report have already sued the company for FCRA violations. Justia lists at least 5 federal civil lawsuits against CoreLogic that allege violations of the FCRA due to improper employment screening reports.

For example, on March 22, 2016, a consumer sued CoreLogic in the federal district court for the Northern District of Georgia for violating the FCRA in connection with an employment background check and that she lost employment opportunities and suffered emotional distress, reputational harm and other damages. The complainant alleged that she went to “tax school” with Barnes & Linder, Inc. (BL) and BL then hired her as a tax specialist. According to the complainant, BL then obtained an employment background check from GoodHire that contained information reported to GoodHire by CoreLogic, but GoodHire and CoreLogic failed to use reasonable procedures to ensure the maximum accuracy possible of the report as the FCRA requires. The complainant alleged that the report falsely listed a felony conviction when, in fact, she had never been convicted of a felony. Based on the inaccurate information in the report, BL demoted and then effectively terminated the complainant.

This is just one of at least 5 federal civil FCRA lawsuits filed against CoreLogic. Most of those lawsuits allege that CoreLogic did not take reasonable steps to verify criminal background information and, as a result, falsely branded the complainants as convicted felons and caused them to lose job opportunities. Several complainants filed their lawsuits as class action complaints, on behalf of themselves and similarly situated people.

    I had a new job all set and ready to go, until the last thing which was the background check came back from “Corelogic Background” providing inaccurate information.

  • Cassie D

    Retracted job offer due to “Corelogic background check findings”. Thank you ahead of time… Thanks.

  • Derek C

    I was denied housing as a direct result of Core Logic’s report incorrectly reflecting that I was convicted of a felony.

  • Lola Smith

    How do I get a copy of this report? I was about to get a job offer with GEICO last year and we were agreeing to money amounts, and all the sudden someone waved my person out of the room, and just like that, I was walked out? How do I get a background report from then?
