PeopleFacts is a background screening company that provides background check services to employers about job applicants or current employees before offering a new job or promotion. These reports show employment history, credit and financial history, criminal history, previous addresses, education, and much more. If you are applying for a new job, or in line for a promotion, PeopleFacts may be supplying background information and it is their responsibility to make sure it is accurate.
Mistakes on your PeopleFacts background check can be devastating. False employment reports may prevent you from getting a job or promotion, but they may also cause other issues, such as denials for home loans or apartment leases, increase in loan and interest rates, credit denials and much more.
That’s why it is so important to make sure your background check is correct, and that you know how to dispute any PeopleFacts background check mistakes.
The Fair Credit Reporting Act protects consumers from the unfair use of false employment reports. According to the FCRA:
If your PeopleFacts Employment Background report contains inaccurate information, you have the right to dispute the information and have it corrected. After you dispute, PeopleFacts has 30 days to investigate the information and make the correction. If your dispute is ignored or unresolved after 30 days, you have the right to sue.
