A class action lawsuit has been filed against popular restaurant Dave and Busters for violating the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). Joseph Alvarez alleges that he applied for employment at the companies Orlando, Florida location earlier this year. Upon receiving final results from the background check performed on Mr. Alvarez Dave and Busters decided to terminate his employment. Here is where the issue happens, Dave and Busters didn’t provide a copy of the report to Mr. Alvarez which is in clear violation of the FCRA. The law states that employers who decide to take adverse action based on the findings of an employment background check must provide a copy to the subject of the report in order to confirm the accuracy of the information reported. Alvarez’s class action includes all employees and job applicants that have had their employment affected negatively over the last five years and that were not provided the required FCRA disclosures, and seeks statutory damages (which could be up to $1,000 per violation) plus punitive damages.
