Accurate Background specializes in providing background checks and employment screening to both large and small businesses. When employers are hiring, or are doing a routine check on all their employees, they will often hire third-party companies like Accurate Background for employment verification services. They are a legitimate background check company, and some of the better known companies that have used Accurate Background screening services include Amazon, Starbucks, Sephora, Ross, Crate & Barrel, and the Cheesecake Factory.

What does Accurate Background look for?

What appears in your Accurate Background check depends on the screening services that your potential or current employer chooses.

Available services include:

  • criminal history
  • employment verification
  • education verification
  • drug testing
  • driving history and motor vehicle reports
  • credit reports

How long does an Accurate background check take?

The processing time for your Accurate background check depends on a variety of factors, like how many services the employer requested, holidays and weekends, natural disasters etc. You can always check with your potential employer or contact Accurate Background.

Does Your Accurate Background Check Have Errors?

Pre-employment background screening can be the deciding factor a company uses when making the decision to hire someone. With so much riding on your background check, it is important that all the information is accurate; however, many times due to human error or outdated information, you may find mistakes on your background check.

If you find errors on your background check provided by Accurate Background, it is important that you know your rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) about False Employment Reports.

  • Employers must get your permission prior to obtaining an Accurate Background check.
  • Employers must provide you with a copy of the report and your FCRA rights before taking adverse action.
  • Employers using Accurate Background, such as Amazon, must notify potential or current employees when a job is denied or terminated due to an employment report.
  • You have the right to obtain a copy of your Accurate Background employment verification report and ensure that all of the reported information is correct. If your background check contains errors, you have the right to dispute. If these errors kept you from getting a job, you may be able to sue Accurate Background.

Be sure to contact Accurate Background and dispute errors immediately.

Dispute Accurate Background Errors

When disputing an error, explain how the information should accurately be reported. Accurate Background then has 30 days to look into the error and correct the mistake. If the error is not corrected or if your dispute is ignored, you may be able to sue them.

Class Action Lawsuit involving Accurate Background

In a 2017 class action lawsuit filed against Starbucks, the plaintiff claims that the company rejected job applicants based on their consumer reports, without first providing them with a copy of the reports and notifying them of their rights, in violation of the FCRA.

The lead plaintiff claims his consumer report provided by Accurate Background contained criminal history of another person with a similar name, and this inaccurate information was what caused Starbucks to reject his employment candidacy. Days after the rejection, the plaintiff claimed he received a letter from Accurate Background on behalf of Starbucks containing a copy of his report. This is in violation of the FCRA since this copy should have been provided before any adverse action was taken.
