Will I get a notification for a negative background check result?

If an employee's background check returns negative results, the employee will receive a pre-adverse action notification from the employer.

This notification:

  • Includes a copy of the background report and a Summary of Rights that tells the employee how to contact the company that provided the report.
  • Provides a reasonable period of time during which the employee can dispute the results.

If a candidate or employee disputes the results of a background check, they will need to contact Checkr directly at
