The lawsuit against Postmates Courier
In the year 2015 the enterprise Postmates Courier was accused by three individuals of having violated the dispositions stated on the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA).
To the three candidates that presented themselves to the enterprise, jobs were denied due to their background check results; they also argued that once the decision was taken, they never received a copy of those results, depriving them of their right to contest.
Another event that made the situation even worst was the fact that the background check was conducted without ever receiving the appropriate form requested by law, in which they could give the proper authorization for conducting the background check.
Due to this accusations, the enterprise Postmates Courier decided to pay the $2,5 millions demanded to compensate every person that worked for this enterprise between mid-2013 and mid-2016; and they decided so not because the enterprise recognized having violated the FCRA, but for avoiding bigger expenses if the case continued to trial.
It is stated out the enormous importance of giving to candidates, from behalf of employers, the appropriate documents in compliance with the current law, and to inform them of their rights of contesting or rectifying the obtained results in a background check.
