My husband has been denied jobs because of a criminal background check..that comes up with someone using his social security number and birthday. My husband has never been arrested for anything isn't this identity theft.
This is a potentially serious case. Background check companies sometimes mix consumer files and that can result in erroneous reports. He may be entitled to compensation. An attorney with Fair Credit Reporting Act experience may be able to represent him on contingency which means no out of pocket responsibility for attorney's fees. Do not delay as there is a statue of limitations.
If your husband has been denied jobs because of some errors on background check reports he should contact a very good attorney right away, as he may have a very serious lawsuit. At the very minimum an attorney experienced with these types of credit reporting cases can help get this problem fixed quickly so that your husband will not lost any more jobs because of this.
This was likely caused by either of two things: 1) someone used your husband's identity when charged with a crime, or 2) the background check companies have your husband mixed up with somebody else with similar name. As I said above, he will need a good and experienced attorney to get this figured out. Finally, a good attorney will take this case on a contingent basis and not charge your husband any fees unless they collect a recovery for him.
