Chuck E. Cheese to pay $1.75M to settle class action over background checks
Tags : FCRA Compliance
The settlement comes as a result of allegations that the company’s background check authorization forms violated the federal Fair Credit Reporting and California Investigative Consumer Reporting Agencies Acts.
According to Law360.com, the complaint alleged that the popular family entertainment chain’s “preauthorization form” was “embedded in a multi-page employment application, and contains a liability release, among other extraneous information” – a practice which runs afoul to FCRA requirements that employers must obtain authorization to run a background check on standalone disclosure and authorization forms.
Since the approval of the settlement, Chuck E. Cheese has implemented fully compliant background check authorization forms in every state in which it conducts business.
