“Background Check done incorrectly – anything I can do?”

Sklover Working Wisdom

Question : I was offered a job by phone, and accepted it, pending a background check. The next day I received a phone call from the company’s HR Director in which he told me the offer was rescinded due to several items that appeared on my background check, including convictions for crimes in states I had never been to. Could I sue the background registry company? . Joshua, thanks for writing in from Guam.
