Background Check Attorneys With Your Best Interests in Mind

The possibility of starting a new job is exciting. You want to present yourself, your work experience, and your skills to a potential employer in the best possible light. Background checks are standard in hiring – however, other people’s criminal histories can appear on yours in some situations. The next steps you take are of utmost importance, and the background check lawyers of Ramos Law are here to help.

All it takes is one false background check to ruin your chances of being considered for a new job or even your current employment status. Companies often utilize background check results as a means of termination. Those with common names, such as “John Smith,” are at the highest risk of false background checks.

If you are wrongfully terminated or dismissed due to a false background check, it can feel embarrassing, confusing, and disappointing. At Ramos Law, our team understands the powerlessness resulting from an incorrect criminal history. Our background check attorneys are here to help, representing you in changing the documented history to reflect reality.

Leveraging the FCRA

The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) is a federal law established in 1970 regulating consumer credit information collection and use. It protects consumers like you from false background checks in several ways:

  • Consumer reporting agencies (CRAs) must follow reasonable procedures to ensure accurate information.
  • Consumers have the right to dispute inaccurate or incomplete information in their reports.
  • Businesses that use consumer information must take particular steps before ensuing action against them.

You could have a claim if you believe you were denied a job or an opportunity from a false background check. Our background check attorneys can help you navigate the process.
