Potential Employment; what information does a
Jul 27, 1998

I would like to know what possible information a "background check" could legally reveal in the state of Texas.

I recently went through a grueling pre-employment screening. Very few who were interested in the jobs passed the pre-employment technical tests. I did pass them. I have heard no more, although the recruiter indicated my test scores would definately result in an offer.

I am suspicious as to what may or may not have been revealed in a "background check" which was required to be considered for employment.

Do I have a right to know what information they received? Do I have a right to know where any (incorrect or discriminatory) information originated? How do I gain access to any information which I am legally entitled to?

Response from Ms. Franzoi

I do not know what information is available in the state of Texas on a background check. I would suggetst that you contact a legal aid foundation in your city to see if they can advise you re this.i.e., what agencies are contacted, what information is obtained, etc.
