Background Checks and the FCRA: What Employers Need to Know 

With the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) having highly technical requirements, you’ll want to make sure that your company is compliant. Class action lawsuits against employers over very minor technical defects in forms/processes are on the rise with no sign of slowing down. How are you protecting your organization? Accurate Background is here to help. We’ve put together a white paper that answers some of the most common questions that employers have about the FCRA.

The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has disrupted many aspects of our lives, up to and including how we run our businesses. One of the hardest-hit areas is the hiring of new employees and the corresponding processes, such as Form I-9 verifications and criminal and financial background checks. With many government agencies partially closed or furloughed, including the local court systems, background checks are more complicated — and more important — than ever.


In this eBook, we will walk you through some essential things employers need to consider during the COVID-19 pandemic, including:

  • What has changed
  • What hasn’t changed
  • What options you have
  • 5 best practices to mitigate risk
