GoodHire is a background check provider specializing in employment background checks. GoodHire is a division of Inflection Risk Solutions, a company that offers employment and tenant screening solutions.
Depending on the information requested, a GoodHire background check may contain, but not limited to the following:
Depending on the type of job you are applying for, your employer may request any number of these services. GoodHire cannot perform a background check without your authorization. Generally, you will sign an authorization form when applying for a job that allows the employer to run a background check. A background check should never be done without your permission.
According to the GoodHire website, employment background checks can take as little as 1 minute up to 5 days. It all depends on what information is requested by the employer.
While instant GoodHire background checks sound great for you and employers, the biggest problem with instant results is errors.
One of the most common issues with instant background checks are mixed files. This is when information belonging to another individual shows up on your background check. This generally happens due to similar names.
Most of the time, if you do not have a criminal history, you have nothing to worry about. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. Mistakes on background checks happen often. Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) GoodHire must make sure that the information they provide is accurate and up-to-date.
If errors on your GoodHire Background Check have cost you a job or delayed your start date, you may have a case. Find out now.
Your rights under the FCRA also give you the right to dispute errors on your GoodHire background screening.
When information in a background check is used against you, you must be notified by the employer. They are then responsible for giving you the contact information of the company that supplied the report, a copy of the report, and a summary of your rights under the FCRA.
Once you file a dispute with GoodHire, they have 30 days to investigate and prove that the information they have is correct, or remove the errors.
If you lost a job, were delayed a job, or lost a promotion due to inaccurate information on a background check or credit report, you may have a case and you may be able to sue GoodHire in federal court.
