Employers, here’s yet another reason to check your disclosure forms. A recent lawsuit claims that Chipotle violated the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) because it did not provide a FCRA-compliant disclosure regarding conducting background checks on job applicants, and did not provide them with a written summary of rights under the FCRA.


The lawsuit filed by Lorena Mejia alleges that the disclosure form used by Chipotle was “surrounded by other language pertaining to additional information Mejia was required to consent to on the application.”


In addition to FCRA violations, Top Class Actions reports that the lawsuit also alleges violations of the Investigative Consumer Reporting Agencies Act (ICRAA), Consumer Credit Reporting Agencies Act, and California Business & Professions Code.
