Whenever a potential criminal record is found in a database, the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) requires the consumer reporting agency, Checkr, to either notify the applicant that potentially adverse information has been found or physically retrieve the court record at the source to verify identity and retrieve record details (charge, disposition, sentence, etc.) The 613 notice reads as follows:
The purpose of this email is to notify you that Checkr, Inc., a consumer reporting agency, is reporting criminal or other public record information that may be adverse about you to [Company].
This notice is not an indication of [Company]'s decision regarding your application status.
Your background check is still being processed. A Checkr representative can address any questions or concerns you have regarding the contents of your report as soon as it is complete.
In each case, Checkr both notifies the applicant and retrieves the record in question.
