The Littler law firm recently issued a paper, noting the “swelling tide of class action litigation against employers under the [FCRA].” A note accompanying the publication adds that “[t]hese lawsuits…typically…allege hyper-technical non-compliance with the FCRA (e.g., supposed defects in the employer’s pre-employment forms and template notices). That is, the lawsuits appear to be lawyer-contrived cash grabs because no job applicant or employee possibly could have suffered any real harm.”  The paper was authored by Rod Fliegel, Jennifer Mora and William Simmons.
