Anaheim CA Background Screenings

Anaheim Employers Must Follow Federal Background Check Rules

While it's important for employers in California to follow state-specific rules regarding employment background checks, it's also critical to avoid violating the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). According to the Anaheim-based Setareh Law Group, the FCRA requires employers to provide potential employees with a stand-alone document stating that a background check may be required. It's also necessary to obtain written permission before gathering background information.

In addition, if employers deny or terminate employment based on information found in a background check, they must provide the information to the person to review for accuracy and advise them of their rights under the FCRA. Failing to follow any of these requirements could result in employers being sued by their employees or job candidates.

Chuck E. Cheese Background Check Lawsuit

In 2015, CEC Entertainment, owner of the popular restaurant Chuck E. Cheese, was named in a class-action lawsuit for its use of background checks in the hiring process. According to Anaheim legal firm Bridge Law, the company settled for $1.75 million for allegedly violating the Fair Credit Reporting Act and similar state laws.

Each affected employee received a settlement ranging from $38 to $63. While this seems insubstantial at the individual level, it's easy to see how quickly it can add up. Employers wishing to protect themselves from a similar fate must take care to follow all laws when conducting employment background checks.
