If your company’s background check disclosure form includes a release of liability, take it out.
Less than a year after a federal district court in Pennsylvania ruled that Closetmaid violated the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) by including release language in its background check disclosure form, the Publix supermarket chain agreed to pay nearly $6.8 million to settle a similar lawsuit.
In both lawsuits, the employers used background check disclosure forms that not only disclosed to applicants that a background check would be performed, but also asked the applicant to release the company from any liability in connection with the background check process. The FCRA, which is the federal law that governs pre-employment background checks, requires that employers provide a disclosure to applicants before conducting a background check. Simple enough, but the FCRA also requires that this disclosure be made in writing and “in a document that consists solely of the disclosure.” 15 U.S.C. § 1681b(b)(2).
