The information in your background report will depend on what the employer requests. The following are some of the services provided by Driver iQ.
Did your Driver iQ background check contain errors? Perhaps your employment history was wrong. Or worse, your Driver iQ report has incorrect criminal history. Unfortunately, employment background check errors are common.
The most common background check errors are mixed files. This is when information belonging to another individual is reported on your background report. It happens most often to people with common names. This type of error can be very damaging, not only resulting in denial of employment but also ruin your reputation.
The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) protects consumers from false information being reported on credit reports, background checks, and other consumer reports like employment history.
If information obtained in a background check is used to deny you employment, the employer must notify you, give you the contact information of the company that supplied the report and give you a copy of a summary of your rights under the FCRA.
The FCRA also gives you the right to dispute errors on your reports. If a credit report or background check contains inaccurate information it is important that you dispute it right away. False information on a background check can result in unemployment or a long delay before your start date.
The FCRA gives you the right to sue background check companies for providing false information about you to employers. If any of the following has happened, you may have a case and be able to sue in Federal Court.
