Florida Law Firm Files Three Class Action Lawsuits on Same Day against Employers Alleging Violation of FCRA with Background Checks

A Florida law firm filed federal class action lawsuits in the same court against three separate national employers on the same day, with two of them naming the same consumer as the lead plaintiff, alleging violations of the FCRA by failure to obtain a valid background check consent on an online application process. The three complaints brought on behalf of individual plaintiffs as well a class of similarly situated individuals essentially allege the same type of violation�that the employer failed to obtain a valid consent on a standalone form that did not contain extraneous information.
