A class action lawsuit filed in Central California against O’Reilly Auto Parts alleges the company obtained and used information from background checks during its hiring processes without obeying state and federal mandates, according to a story on ClassActionNews.com available at http://www.classactionsnews.com/employment/o%E2%80%99reilly-auto-parts-illegal-background-class-action-lawsuit.
ClassActionNews.com reports plaintiff Raphael Saye filed a complaint alleging O’Reilly Auto Parts failed to provide proper pre-authorization disclosures and adverse action disclosures causing Saye and others to have their privacy and statutory rights violated. The class action lawsuit claims O’Reilly Auto Parts violated the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), Investigative Consumer Reporting Agencies Act, and California Business and Professions Code.
ClassActionNews.com reports the class action lawsuit alleges O’Reilly Auto Parts did not present background check disclosures in a clear stand-alone document as required by the FCRA but as a hyperlink on a webpage full of content. The complaint also claims O’Reilly failed to provide the plaintiff with a copy of his background check report or a summary of his rights under the FCRA after his termination because of information on his background check report.
The plaintiff also claims he was never sent a post-adverse action notice to inform him of the consumer reporting agency that conducted his background check.
