The U.S. Supreme Court has announced that it will review a very significant case that impacts employers. The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) case involves Plaintiff Thomas Robins who alleged that Defendant Spokeo Inc. (Consumer Reporting Agency) issues consumer reports that violate the FCRA. The case questions whether or not someone can sue under a statute, [and possibly bring a class action] simply based on a technical violation. The case disregards whether or not that individual actually suffered an injury.
Earlier this year we posted the top employment screening trends to watch for in 2015. One trend was the ‘Ban-the-Box’ movement. This law prohibits employers from putting a “box” on employment applications asking candidates if they have ever been convicted of a crime. ‘Ban-the-box’ protects ex-offenders, and doesn’t exclude them from moving through the hiring process because of a criminal record. Currently, most ‘ban-the-box’ laws apply to public employers or government contractors in a few cities and counties. Due to some recent events, the prospect of a Federal ‘ban-the-Box’ order has gained some traction.
