SUPERIOR COURT OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA
COUNTY OF SANTA CLARA
Case No.: 18CV336219

If, at any time from October 12, 2013 through September 13, 2021, you applied for employment with SIGNATURE CONSULTANTS, LLC or SIGNATURE COMMERCIAL SOLUTIONS, LLC, and SIGNATURE CONSULTANTS, LLC or SIGNATURE COMMERCIAL SOLUTIONS, LLC procured a background check report on you for employment purposes, the above-titled class action lawsuit may affect your rights, and you may be entitled to a payment under the proposed settlement (the “Settlement”) described below.

You are not being sued. A court authorized Notice. This is not a solicitation from a lawyer.

PLEASE READ THE NOTICE CAREFULLY. IT CONTAINS IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR RIGHTS.

  • This is a class action lawsuit that involves a class defined as “All current and former employees or applicants for employment of Defendants in the United States on whom Defendants procured or caused to be procured a consumer report from October 12, 2013 through September 13, 2021.”

  • Plaintiff in this class action, Lydia Wilson (“Plaintiff”) alleges that SIGNATURE CONSULTANTS, LLC and SIGNATURE COMMERCIAL SOLUTIONS, LLC (collectively, “Defendants” or “Signature”) acquired consumer, investigative consumer, and/or consumer credit reports to conduct background checks on Plaintiff and other prospective current and former applicants for employment purposes without providing proper disclosures and obtaining proper authorization in violation of the Fair Credit Report Act and failed to provide prospective current and former employees with a Summary of Rights under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, along with similar state law claims under the California Investigative Consumer Reporting Agencies Act, and the California Consumer Credit Reporting Agencies Act.

  • Signature denies Plaintiff’s claims and asserts that it has complied with all of its legal obligations to applicants and its employees.

  • There has been a Settlement that affects your legal rights. Although the Court has authorized the Parties to provide a Notice of the proposed settlement, the Court has expressed no opinion on the merits of Plaintiff’s claims or Signature’s defenses.
