Uber and Lyft use Checkr to do their background checks. Checkr has a lengthy history of putting false criminal information on applicant’s background checks, i.e. records of arrests or convictions that do not belong to you.
Checkr is not the only violator: First Advantage and Hireright are two other background check companies that seriously mix up criminal record information and often put it onto the wrong person’s background check report.
If you have lost a job opportunity because of false criminal information on a background check, please contact us. We have been taking on these cases and doing well ($$$) with them. Please note: we will need a copy of the background check report before we can proceed with any case on your behalf, so please contact the employer to get a copy or request a copy in writing directly from Checkr, First Advantage, Hireright or any background check company that violates your rights. You can find out the addresses to send requests for your reports by googling the name of the background check company, and you can find out the name of the background check company from the company that rejected you by sending it a certified letter requesting this information.
Thank you for reading and I hope this helps.
