Delta to pay $2.3M to settle background check lawsuit

Delta Air Lines has agreed to pay $2.3 million to settle a class-action lawsuit. The suit alleges it failed to provide approximately 44,000 applicants with a stand-alone background check disclosure, which would be in violation of the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and California law.

Delta’s forms contained extraneous and misleading information, according to plaintiffs, including information about state laws; they also allegedly could not be understood without reading the FCRA itself.

The proposed Class in the Delta class action lawsuit would include anyone who applied for employment with Delta from October 2012 through February 2019 whose information was included in a consumer report obtained by the airline.
