As some of you may have seen, NBC’s Today Show did a report on the accuracy of employment background checks which aired on Friday, November 9th. The Rossen Report that aired alleged that applicants are often mistakenly reported as having a criminal history based on a match to the applicant’s name and date of birth. While the report was primarily one-sided, it does address some important points in the background screening process and Accurate Background’s obligation to applicants to provide correct results. We want to take this opportunity to address some best practices surrounding the measures that our organization takes to ensure we provide compliant and accurate background screening results.
Quality Assurance is Key
The Rossen Report is correct in stating that applicants can be denied a job due to mistakes made in the background screening process. Not only is Accurate Background required under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) to confirm the accuracy of the information we provide, we understand the potential impact inaccurate information can have on an applicant’s ability to gain employment. For this reason, we employ rigorous quality assurance steps in our screening process.
