Walmart Background Checks

Were You Denied a Job at Walmart due to an Incorrect Background Check?

Does Walmart Do Background Checks?

Before you start working at Walmart, you should expect to undergo a background check and drug screening. No matter where you are in the hiring process, Walmart must have your consent before doing a background check.

My Walmart Background Check is Incorrect

When your background check comes back with errors, it can be incredibly frustrating. You have rights under the FCRA that protect you.

If Walmart does not hire you due to information from your background check you should expect the following:

  • You must be notified if you are not being hired based on the information in your background check.
  • Walmart will need to provide you with the contact information of the company that performed the background check.
  • Walmart must let you know that you have the right to dispute errors on your background check.

Background Check Errors Can Cause Job Loss

Dispute Walmart Background Check Errors

You have the right to dispute errors on your Walmart background check.

To dispute your background check you will need to contact the company the created the report. This contact information should be supplied to you by Walmart.

Background check companies have 30 days to investigate your dispute and correct any errors.

Who Does Walmart Use For Background Checks?

Walmart may use outside companies to process background checks. In the past Walmart has used companies like Sterling Talent Solutions and First Advantage for background checks.

Can I Sue for Background Check Errors?

You may have a case and may be able to sue in federal court if any of the following happened:

  • You lost a job due to errors on your background check
  • Your job start date was delayed because of errors on your background check
  • You missed out on a promotion because of errors on your background check

Each case is different. You may be able to sue the background check company and/or the company that used the false background check information against you.
