Our consumer attorneys fight against false reporting provided by employment background check companies. Did a Universal background check cost you a job? We can help.

Who is Universal Background Screening?

Universal Background Screening is an employment background check service. They provide pre-employment background checks, drug testing, and verifications to employers.

What is in a Universal Background Screening Background Check?

What is included in your background check will be determined by what the employer requests. Some employers need more information than others. It generally depends on the job you are applying for.
A background check from Universal Background Screening may include but is not limited to the following:

  • Social Security verification
  • Employment verification
  • OFAC SDN search
  • Criminal history
  • Education verification
  • Employment history
  • License verification
  • Federal and County court searches
  • Reference checks

Did Your Universal Background Check Contain Errors?

Mixed files are the most common type of background check error, which unfortunately happens often. A mixed file is when your information is mixed with the information of another individual on your background report. This happens many times due to similar names, birthdates, or addresses. Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, background check companies are supposed to ensure that the information they provide in their reports is accurate and up to date, but that does not always happen. Errors on your Universal Background Screening report can cause you to be denied employment.

Background Check Errors Can Cause Job Loss
