Violation Tracker Individual Record
Starbucks agreed to settle this suit alleging that it systematically violated the Fair Credit Reporting Act by failing to give job applicants timely notice that consumer credit reports might be used against them in the hiring process. The settlement involved payments ranging from a $125 gift card to $840 in cash plus the gift card for each class member. No estimate of the total cost to the company was cited in the court documents. Starbucks also paid $20,000 to the class representatives and $1,285,000 for the plaintiffs' legal fees.
