To mitigate the risk of FCRA class-action lawsuits, HR and hiring managers must comply with FCRA guidelines. Part of this process is obtaining consent prior to screening employees or candidates. After receiving the report, employers must also follow adverse action requirements. Even though the requirements are spelled out, employers don't always follow through with the specifics listed in the Fair Credit Reporting Act and that misstep leads to millions of dollars in punitive fines.
