Realogy background check criminal records form

In a Realogy background check class action settlement, the company has agreed to pay more than $400,000 to resolve claims that they violate the Fair Credit Reporting Act.

The settlement benefits individuals who had at least one Realogy background check conducted by HireRight between Sept. 18, 2016 and June 6, 2019. There are an estimated 8,154 individuals in this settlement Class.

Plaintiff Anita Bryant filed her Realogy background check class action lawsuit in September 2018, claiming that Realogy LLC obtained and used consumer background checks for employment purposes without consumer notification. According to Bryant, these actions violated the Fair Credit Reporting Act.

The FCRA is a federal law which aims to promote fairness, accuracy and privacy for consumer reports. This includes credit reports from credit agencies as well as background checks. The federal law requires that consumers be informed when their reports are obtained, including if the reports are obtained for employment purposes.

Bryant’s Realogy background check class action lawsuit claimed the company violated the FCRA by failing to disclose their use of consumer reports. Based on these alleged violations, the plaintiff sought damages under the federal law.



Realogy has not admitted any wrongdoing but agreed to resolve the claims against them with a $407,700 settlement.

Instead of admitting wrongdoing, the deal resolves Bryant’s claims and avoids the cost of further litigation.

Similarly, the Realogy background check class action settlement provides monetary compensation should the class action continue. Based on these facts, Class counsel argues that the deal is reasonable and fair.

“Class Counsel has conducted a thorough study and investigation of the law and facts relating to the claims that have been asserted as well as a thorough study and investigation of the scope and identity of the Settlement Class, and have concluded, considering the benefits of this settlement, as defined below, and the risks and delays of further litigation, that this settlement is fair and reasonable and in the best interests of the Settlement Class,” the Realogy background check class action settlement agreement notes.

Under the Realogy background check class action settlement, Class Members will recover an equal share of the net settlement fund. Class counsel estimates that these payments will be $50, although this could vary depending on the amount in fees and costs deducted as well as the number of claims filed.



The Realogy background check class action settlement also provides up to $135,900 in attorneys’ fees, equaling up to 33.33 percent of the settlement fund, and a $5,000 representative award to Bryant for her work as lead plaintiff.

In order to benefit from the settlement, Class Members must file a valid claim form by June 1, 2020. Claims can be submitted either online or through the mail, although online claim forms require specific notice information. No documentation is required to submit a claim.

The deadline for exclusion and objection is May 18, 2020. Objecting to the settlement will allow the Class Members to voice any problems they have with the settlement terms. Excluding themselves from the settlement will make Class Members ineligible for recovery under the settlement but will conserve their legal rights against Realogy.

The final approval hearing for the Realogy background check class action settlement is scheduled for July 10, 2020.
