Background checks can happen anytime, but they are often conducted when applying for a job.

The background check results must be obtained before starting a job after receiving an offer. Most people don’t think that there will be mistakes in their background checks, but errors in background checks frequently occur and can prevent you from landing a job.

This is your livelihood. Your ability to provide for your family is at stake. This time it’s your job. Next time it will be your access to housing. Do not hesitate to contact a Mississippi background check error lawyer at Ware Law Firm if you believe your background check report contains debilitating errors.

Retain a Background Check Error Lawyer to Dispute Background Check Mistakes

The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) requires that a background check company use reasonable procedures to assure the maximum possible accuracy of the information about the individual to whom the report relates.

Unfortunately, this is not always so. Credit reporting bureaus like Equifax, Experian, TransUnion, and other businesses sell your file to background reporting companies, who then resell the data to potential employers and renters. The reports help employers assess your application for a position and make a hiring decision.

Additionally, your employer may use the background reports to determine whether to fire, promote, or reassign you. You must give your current or potential employers authorization for a background check. Details like an inaccurate criminal record, outdated information, or even a case of mistaken identity can prevent you from getting a job. Worst-case scenario, a background check error could be a symptom of identity theft. If that’s the case, inform the credit reporting agencies right away.

They will place a fraud alert on your file so that anyone requesting a copy of your credit report knows the data has been hacked. You can also ask the credit reporting agencies to freeze your credit, stopping most creditors from ever seeing your background report. You should also contact a background check error lawyer if you suspect you are a victim of identity fraud in Mississippi.

A Good Background Check Error Lawyer Knows the Law

A good background check lawyer will tell you that the results of this report should not ambush you. Employers must notify you of their intention to conduct a background check on you in writing.

The employer must provide you with a copy of the report and a written summary of your Fair Credit Reporting Act rights before using the findings of a background check report. The employer must give you enough time to contest or discuss report findings before making a final hiring decision. You may be able to prevent problems due to a background check error by working with an experienced background check error lawyer.

What Our Clients Say
Christopher Graves
I think reviews from consumer are important; yet, reviews from other attorneys are just as important, in my opinion. Lawyers know the level of integrity, skill, and value-added of their colleagues. With that being said, Daniel Ware can be summed up in sentence: Daniel Ware is your favorite lawyer's favorite lawyer. If I had a civil, criminal, or bankruptcy matter, Daniel would the lawyer I would call.
Kelvin Beverly
Mr. Ware is a very dependable and committed lawyer. He kept me in the loop of what was going on and most importantly he never stopped fighting for my case. That old saying 'He was A-1 from Day-1." Thanks Mr Ware.
Jennifer Bennett
Daniel Ware is an amazing lawyer; very professional and committed. This has been stated over and over again in the reviews. However, he's more than that. Intelligent, compassionate and empathetic you can trust your concerns will be handled. I could go on, but the fact is I'd trust no one else for my affairs. The Ware Law Firm is all I needed.
