ST. LOUIS — A St. Charles County security officer is suing a security service provider company for allegedly reporting inaccurate information during a background screening report.
Dalewayne Turner filed a complaint Aug. 15 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri Eastern Division against G4S Secure Solutions (USA) Inc., G4S Compliance & Investigations Inc. and G4S US Inc., alleging the defendants violated the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA).
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on May 12, he was terminated from employment due to an allege felony conviction that showed up on a background check the defendants conducted, which was a condition of his employment. The plaintiff offered to give defendants a certified copy of his case showing he has not pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor DUI on June 9, 2010, not a felony charge.
As a result, Turner claims the allegedly inaccurate records could affect his application, and he became unemployed for a period of time.
The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because they allegedly reported inaccurate information in the background screening report, failed to follow reasonable procedures when conducting background screening and failed to maintain strict procedures designed to ensure that the information in the background screening report was complete and up to date.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment and an award of actual damages, punitive damages, court costs, pre- and post-judgment interest, reinstatement and other relief the court deems fair. He is represented by Kevin J. Dolley of Law Offices of Kevin J. Dolley LLC in St. Louis.
