In this lawsuit, the Class Representative alleged that RTG procured background checks on job applicants using a disclosure form that she contends is not in the format required by the Fair Credit Reporting Act. For that reason, she contends that those background checks were not properly authorized. RTG denies that it violated the law and has asserted defenses to the Class Representative’s claims. The Class Representative’s Amended Class Action Complaint and Defendant’s Answer are posted on this website.
