America’s leading discount department store Ross Dress for Less and its staffing company DMSI have recently come under scrutiny for conducting background checks on job applicants. Class action attorneys believe that Ross and DMSI have conducted illegal background checks on thousands of applicants without proper disclosures or authorization. Even worse, Ross and DMSI stand accused of rejecting job applicants without providing copies of their background reports. This practice is believed to have the largest effect on applicants with common names or criminal records who are denied employment without an individual assessment of their qualifications.
California-based Ross Stores, Inc., which does business as “Ross Dress for Less,” is one of the country’s largest discount department stores.
DMSI Staffing Inc. is a staffing company located in Moreno Valley, California, among other locations. DMSI staffs Ross’s warehouses and distribution centers.
Federal law requires employers to provide all job applicants with a clear disclosure in writing of their intent to obtain a background report. Employers have to get your authorization before they obtain a background report. Background checks often include false information that can frustrate your employment prospects, and the law gives you a chance to correct it. It is not uncommon for a background report to erroneously include information – even criminal offenses – about a different person. Thus, employers must give you notice of their intent not to hire you because of information contained in your background report. You are entitled to a copy of your report at no charge BEFORE the employer denies your application for employment. In certain circumstances, you may be entitled to statutory damages if an employer fails to comply with the law relating to background checks.
