GIS Background Screening Complaint - Mistaken For Sex Offender
I applied for employment at the Kroger Grocery Store, located in Staunton, Va. I have a Law Enforcement Background and have NEVER been arrested. Kroger has General Information Servives (GIS) perform pre-employment background checks.
As an Officer I conducted background checks, and GIS made an unprofessional mistake. GIS, HAD ALL MY CORRECT INFORMATION and then assumed I was an individual on the Virginia Sex Offender registry. I lost the opportunity for employment as KROGER AND GIS WOULD NOT COMMUNICATE.
After e-mails to GIS and KROGER stating I was getting an ATTORNEY, contacted the press, and contacting the Better Business Bureau, GIS did confirm their mistake. Kroger has never replied!
