Big Lots the latest retail chain to be hit with FCRA class action
Tags : FCRA Compliance
Following the likes of retailers such as Sears and Home Depot, Big Lots is accused of violating the Fair Credit Reporting Act for its failure to provide “standalone” disclosures prior to obtaining third-party consumer reports on applicants.
According to Law360, the lead plaintiff in the case alleges that Big Lots failed to supply her with an FCRA-compliant disclosure and authorization form prior to conducting a background check on her when she applied for a position as an overnight stocker in March of 2014. The plaintiff claims she was eventually provided with a compliant version of the form, but that it was after Big Lots had already procured a consumer report on her from a third party, according to the complaint.
