Kohl's Hit With Background Check Class Action Lawsuit

A class action lawsuit alleging improper background checks on job applicants was filed in federal court in California against the retail giant Kohl's Department Stores Inc. Lead plaintiff, Kayonie Coleman, alleges in her class action lawsuit that Kohl's conducted illegal background checks on her in October 2012 and June 2013, prior to employment with the department store. She alleges Kohl's used ambiguous and misleading language to obtain credit reports from a class of job applicants in violation of the FCRA. Kohl's joins yet even more retailers who have been hit with FRCA class actions recently, including Whole Foods Market Inc., Dollar General Corp, and Publix Super Markets.
