The Third District court of appeals delivered a precedent opinion supporting the dismissal of a presumed consumer class action where the plaintiff failed to plead a concrete injury-in-fact stemming from an alleged technical violation of the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003. The court’s decision had to do with Kamal v. J. Crew Group, Inc.

If you are a fan of true crime television like Law and Order or NCIS, I’m sure you have seen the episode where they pull a fingerprint off a gun, or car door analyze it and instantly get a full description of the suspect, which enables them to solve the case! In a perfect world like Hollywood that does exist, but in the real world it couldn’t be further from the truth.

We have been alongside our HR partners as a trusted Consumer Reporting Agency for many years, and have heard all the horror stories. I thought it would bring value to other HR professionals to see what “pain points” their counterparts have encountered while implementing and enforcing their employment background screening program, and what they did to remedy the issues. This may prompt businesses out there to proactively change or modify a policy/process.

This complimentary webinar discussed the good, bad, and ugly of employment background checks. Specifically what employers should be mindful of when conducting new hire background checks. Current trends including Ban The Box / Fair Chance Acts, Salary History Bans, Social Media Searches, and Compliant Disclosure / Authorizations are addressed. Employers of any size and location will benefit from the information provided in this webinar.
If you are performing background checks on new hires, there are strict rules that govern what information you can request. Many states prohibit asking about an applicant’s past salary history, and you must know how this law affects your company. We have created a comprehensive, detailed, and easy to understand guide that explains how this law affects your hiring practices, and what you need to do to remain in compliance.
We provide workplace training to employees and supervisors on topics such as AB 1825, Conflict Resolution, Diversity & Inclusion, Substance Abuse Awareness, and Violence in the Workplace Prevention.
