What appears in your Accurate Background check depends on the screening services that your potential or current employer chooses. Your Accurate background check may include, but is not limited to the following:
The processing time for your Accurate background check depends on a variety of factors, like how many services the employer requested, holidays and weekends, natural disasters etc. You can always check with your potential employer or contact Accurate Background.
Pre-employment background screening can be the deciding factor a company uses when making the decision to hire someone. With so much riding on your background check, it is important that all the information is accurate. Unfortunately, background check errors are common. The most common types of background check errors are outdated information, and mixed files. Mixed files happen when information belonging into another individual ends up on your report. This type of error happens often with common names. Mixed files are most damaging and often result in application denial due to inaccurate criminal history.
If you find errors on your background check provided by Accurate Background, it is important that you know your rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA).
Be sure to contact Accurate Background and dispute errors immediately.
When disputing an error, explain how the information should accurately be reported. Accurate Background then has 30 days to look into the error and correct the mistake. If the error is not corrected or if your dispute is ignored, you may be able to sue them.
