When conducting a background check, you’d think that any professional organisation who provided them would follow up with accurate results, right?
Well it turns out that one particular company, Sterling Infosystems, which claims to be “the world’s largest company focused entirely on background checks,” may have cost an innocent man his job.
Kevin Jones applied to be a doorman for a company called Halstead Management, who then went on to pass his information over to Sterling Infosystems to run a simple background check.
Jones later discovered that his offer for the job was rescinded after Halstead Management found him to have been convicted of several misdemeanours.
You can read more about the story on New York Daily News’ website, or by clicking here.
Jones filed a class-action lawsuit against Sterling Infosystems as a means to ensure that nobody else goes through the same experience that he did.
