Chipotle the target of nationwide class action for alleged FCRA violations
Tags : FCRA Compliance
The restaurant chain allegedly veiled their background check disclosure and failed to provide applicants with written summaries of their rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act and a method to request a copy of their background report.
According to Law360.com, the lead plaintiff in the case claims that Chipotle’s application did in fact include a disclosure that the company would be conducting a background check, but that the provided disclosure was included amongst other extraneous language – a violation under the FCRA.
In addition to the buried disclosure, Chipotle also allegedly failed to provide the applicant with a written summary of her rights under the FCRA. Furthermore, the chain is also accused of violating California privacy laws for failing to include a check-box on their application where applicants could indicate that they would wish to receive a copy of their background checks.
