Infinity Staffing Background Check Class Action Settlement

Infinity Staffing Solutions LLC d|b|a Lyneer Staffing Solutions has agreed to settle a class action lawsuit alleging it violated the FCRA with regard to background checks it obtained on job applicants. The background check class action lawsuit was filed by plaintiff John Giddiens on behalf of consumers who applied for jobs with Infinity Staffing Solutions and Lyneer Staffing Solutions. Giddiens alleges the companies violated FCRA by embedding a release and waiver of rights in the consent and disclosure document they require job applicants to sign prior to ordering a background check, and that they improperly used the background checks to make adverse employment decisions without providing the job applicant with a copy of the report. The defendants deny any wrongdoing but agreed to settle the class action to avoid the distraction, risk and expense of ongoing litigation.
