ORLANDO – A Davenport man alleges adverse employment action was taken against him based on undisclosed consumer report information.
John Riley filed a complaint on behalf of himself and all others similarly situated on Feb. 13 in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida, Orlando Division against United Parcel Service of America Inc. citing the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs alleges that he was offered a position with the defendant as a customer service representative in November 2016, which he was told was dependent on the completion of a background check. On Nov. 14, 2016, he received notification from the defendant that he did not get the position he applied for due to the results of his background check, procured by the defendant from a third-party vendor. He alleges he was given no notice as to the information contained on the report.
The plaintiffs hold United Parcel Service of America Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly took adverse action against plaintiff based on information in a consumer report without furnishing a copy of the report.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against defendant, determine class action, designate representative and counsel, statutory and punitive damages, attorneys' fees, costs, and further relief as the court may deem just. He is represented by Brandon J. Hill of Wenzel Fenton Cabassa PA in Tampa.
