Resignation, Firing & Termination Questions


How can I get a copy of my background check?

Add Answer
If the employer uses information from the consumer report for an "adverse action" -- that is, denying the job applicant, terminating the employee, rescinding a job offer, or denying a promotion -- it must take the following steps:

Before the adverse action is taken, the employer must give the applicant a "pre-adverse action disclosure." This includes a copy of the report and an explanation of the individual's rights under the FCRA.

After the adverse action is taken, the individual must be given an "adverse action notice." This document must contain the name, address, and phone number of the employment screening company, a statement that this company did not make the adverse decision, rather that the employer did, and a notice that the individual has the right to dispute the accuracy or completeness of any of the information in the report.
