How many days does a background check company have to investigate my dispute?

Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, a background check company has 30 days to reinvestigate any disputed information.

If the item of information is inaccurate, incomplete, or cannot be verified, the background check company is required to promptly delete or modify that item of information. The background check company is also required to provide you with the results of any reinvestigation.

If you have been the subject of an erroneous background check, our law firm may be able to help you dispute your information. Please contact us today.
