Wackenhut, now known as G4S Secure Solutions, deals with high level security and security-related solutions. This also includes outsourcing personnel services and all security checks.
If you suspect that Wackenhut or G4S has violated your rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, such as reporting incorrect credit or background information on a background check, then you may be able to sue.
If you find any information on background report from G4S that is inaccurate, it is important to dispute the errors as soon as possible. Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) consumer reporting agencies must be sure the information they provide about you is accurate and up-to-date. Errors on background checks can be very damaging, resulting in job loss, application denial, the loss of a promotion, and the delay in the start date of your job.
The FCRA gives consumers the right to dispute inaccurate information provided in a background check. If negative information in a background check is used against you, the employer must notify you. You should also be given a copy of the background check, the contact information of the company that issued the background check (so that you can dispute inaccuracies), and a summary of your rights under the FCRA.
You may have a case and may be able to sue in federal court if any of the following happened:
