if a background check comes back with false info and it causes you not to get the job can any thing be done.
Ethics / Professional Responsibility Lawyer
It would be very difficult to do anything unless you can prove that you would have gotten the job had the information been correct. That is a very difficult thing to do, because it can be alleged that there were other more qualified individuals or that the employer just decided to hire a particular individual over you. You would have the burden to prove otherwise. If you can get a statement from the employer that you would have gotten the job but for the discrepancy in the background check you will be in a much better position.
