How do I dispute an employment background check?

At ScoutLogic, we’re committed to accuracy, transparency, and promoting fairness in the hiring process. Sometimes, though, the information reported by county courts, credit reporting agencies, and other sources contains errors.  These errors might result from:

  • Transcription/typing errors at the courthouse
  • Confusion because of common names
  • Outdated information from credit reporting agencies
  • Identity theft

We know background checks play an important role in the hiring process. That’s why you should look for any mistakes or incomplete information in your background check results.  If you want to dispute your report, just call us at 1-800-693-2709 or email us at
