Settlement Reached in 7-Eleven FCRA Violations Claim
The convenience store chain agreed to a settlement of nearly $2 million, but denied the allegations.
In a California federal court filing, the plaintiff alleged that 7-Eleven violated the FCRA when the company conducted background checks on applicants and others without providing a "standalone" disclosure. According to court documents, the affected class totals approximately 60,000 members.
The settlement funds will be dispersed to candidates who applied for jobs at 7-Eleven or individuals for whom 7-Eleven obtained a consumer report or background check over the last two years.
Court records state that a preliminary approval hearing is set for July 15, 2019.
