Disputing Information In a Background Check
CONSUMER REPORT DISPUTE POLICY
Our job is to provide accurate information to assist potential employers in making employment related decisions.
National Employment Screening (NES) believes in and supports both the spirit and letter of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA)
We take our responsibilities seriously. That means we want to assist applicants when needed by promptly responding to disputes.
If you believe that information reported by National Employment Screening in the Consumer Report on you is inaccurate, you are entitled to have the information re-verified.
We must verify that we are indeed dealing with the correct person and will ask you to provide details to verify this.
If possible, please have the background check report I.D. number as well as any documents you may have supporting your claim of inaccurate information as this will help us quickly resolve any conflicting information.
By calling, emailing or completing the following form and mailing or faxing it to National Employment Screening LLC, the following action(s) will be taken:
We will go over the disputed information contained in the background report and promptly re-investigate with the county, state or Federal record source that provided the original information.
You are entitled to a copy of the background check if you do not have one, and upon verified request, we or the employer to whom you applied, will be glad to furnish you a copy at no charge.
If corrections are needed, we will promptly re issue the report.
Please remember however, National Employment Screening is not the originating source of public and or private screening information, but rather obtains and verifies information from the appropriate county, state or Federal government agency, credit or public record databases, office of record and various companies, courts and organizations.
Moreover, National Employment Screening has no part in the decision to hire or not hire anyone.
National Employment Screening will accurately report screening records and information it receives from these sources, but is not responsible for accuracy and/or content of information received from court sources during a background investigation.
The following action(s) will be taken:
If the disputed information is from an official record or database, such as criminal, driving, credit or professional license, it will be rechecked for correctness by National Employment Screening.
A) If a report posting a discrepancy is uncovered, the report will be corrected and reissued.
B) If record documentation or an official from the office of record reaffirms the original information, the consumer will be provided with the contact information for disputing the records with the source.
If the disputed information is a verification of a reference, such as prior employment, education, or personal reference, it will be re-verified.
A) If updated or corrected information is provided by an official or appropriate personnel an addendum screening report will be issued.
B) If the original information is reaffirmed by an official or appropriate personnel, the report will be reissued and the consumer will be provided with the contact information for disputing the information with the source.
