GIS Background Check Class Action Settlement

General Information Services Inc. (GIS) has reached a class action lawsuit settlement over allegations it violated the FCRA when providing information for consumer background check reports. If you were the subject of a criminal background check report that contained information furnished by GIS, you may be entitled to money from the class action settlement. The GIS settlement resolves allegations that the background screening company provided reports that contained expunged criminal records or did not mail notices to consumers that GIS had reported public record information likely to have an adverse effect upon the consumer 's employment on the same day that GIS furnished the report to the end-user.
