Employment screening that is conducted by a third-party consumer reporting agency (CRA) is regulated by a federal law called the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). In the last few years, US trial attorneys have realized that FCRA violations can be found at many employers. As a result, the number of FCRA based class action lawsuits has increased by 500% in the last year alone. In this session, we will examine common FCRA violations that can lead to litigation and potential class action lawsuits.

  • Disclosure and Authorization violations
  • Adverse Action Notification violations
  • Release of Liability violations
  • Summary of Rights violations
  • Discrimination violations


Participants in this session will learn the most common FCRA mistakes that can result in large fines and settlements and the simple, but important remedies that can protect your organization.
