Whole Foods settles FCRA class action for over $800K
Tags : FCRA Compliance
The U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida approved a settlement of roughly $803K in the case of Speer v. Whole Foods Market Group, Inc., in which the supermarket chain was accused of improper background check notification methods.
Originally filed in Dec. 2014, the class-action lawsuit alleged that Whole Foods’ job applications violated the FCRA’s “clear and conspicuous disclosure” requirement by including a waiver and release of liability where the company disclosed that they would be obtaining consumer reports for employment purposes.
According to Lexology.com, the settlement will be divvied up amongst roughly 20,000 class members, with each member collecting around $24 after expenses.
