Consumer Rights

ABout Consumer Rights and Background Checks

Employment screening is a highly-regulated industry with built-in consumer protection safeguards that, when properly applied, result in a fair background check process that respects the right of employers to seek the most qualified applicants as well as the right of applicants to seek employment through an equitable and compliant process.

AtBackgrounds complies with the spirit and the letter of the law when it comes to protections afforded to applicants by the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and individual states' consumer reports legislation.

Do we Have a Report on You? 
AtBackgrounds would only have a report on you if it was ordered, with your written consent, by an employer you applied for work with. We do not generate or keep consumer reports on the general public or host any records databases.
