I have ordered an “Investigative Consumer Report’ background screening for potential employer. The investigation company could verify all the employers except one who never responded to any of their questions. They have record this employment as ‘Unable To Verify’. Since FCRA requires that the ICR should not contain Inaccurate, Incomplete and Unverifiable info, can I asked them to delete the section of this employer from my report?
I doubt it because the statement in the report is not inaccurate, incomplete and unverifiable. Good luck to you.

Unlawful Employee Background Checks
Under the Federal Fair Credit Reporting Act, FCRA, EMPLOYERS must:
Lawfully obtain authorization from each employee.
Make strict disclosures to each employee as to what the employer intends on doing with each report, and must not hide these strict disclosures among a job application, making the disclosures difficult to be noticed.
Give the employee a copy of each report and an opportunity to respond.
Not terminate an employee for an adverse report without providing a report to the employee.
I think you should contact the CRA and ask what proof you can supply so there are no deficiencies in your report.
We're you employed before this report was sought by the employer?
