The New York Times published an opinion piece about accuracy in criminal background checks. The article points out the different issues individuals may have when accuracy of what’s being reported comes to mind. There are already problems for people whose background checks contained issues that were found to be false. This can cause employment issues among others, which can take a very long time to rectify-but the damage has been done.
In the same article, it says there have been lawsuits against companies who have inaccurately reported background information. That is something people should be mindful of, because these days, many companies run background checks on potential employees. This is an issue that potentially affects anyone who applies for a job.
Lawsuit advance funding may help individuals in this situation, since taking on a big reporting company is no small task. Someone who is unemployed due to an error in their background check may need funding to help cover basic expenses while the litigation unfolds. Lawsuit funding can be in the form of an advance prior to (pre-settlement) or after (post-settlement) the case reaches conclusion.
