Patrick Tracey Spoke at “The Rise of FCRA Litigation: Trends, Updates, and Best Litigation Strategies Explored” (Webinar)
On July 20, Patrick Tracey joined a panel of key thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group who provided the audience with an in-depth discussion of the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) litigation trends. Speakers presented crucial considerations as well as effective litigation strategies in bringing out the best in this type of lawsuit.
Lawsuits against employers allegedly violating the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) when conducting employee background checks have been continuously increasing. One of the factors behind this significant shift includes the highly technical FCRA requirements that are oftentimes prone to violations.
With this and other prevailing risks, it becomes more crucial for employers and their counsel to be proactive in revisiting and updating their current FCRA compliance programs. Furthermore, being in the know of the latest FCRA regulatory trends and updates is essential in minimizing further legal risk issues. Structuring effective defense strategies for litigation readiness must also be prioritized.
Some of the major topics that were covered in this course are:
- Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) – A Legal Primer
- Recent FCRA Regulatory and Litigation Trends and Developments
- Common Legal Risks and Issues
- Best Litigation Tips and Strategies
- What Lies Ahead
