Class action accuses Hertz of unauthorized background checks

The car rental giant allegedly procured consumer reports on job applicants without their consent and used those checks to systematically disqualify those same individuals from job consideration without providing them copies of the results, according to

Hertz “routinely and systematically failed to provide plaintiff and other job applicants with a copy of their consumer reports prior to taking adverse actions against them,” the complaint alleges. “In doing so, Hertz fails to strictly comply with federal law governing the procurement and use of consumer reports for employment purposes.”
