Case Name

Halvorson v. TalentBin, Inc.
Case No. 3:15-cv-05166-JCS
District Court for the Northern District of California

Case Summary

The individuals who brought the lawsuit, who are called the Plaintiffs, claim that TalentBin was a “consumer reporting agency” and that it failed: (1) to obtain certifications from users of TalentBin’s system that the use is for a “permissible purpose” under the FCRA; (2) to obtain certifications from users who used the candidate profiles for “employment purposes” as defined by the FCRA that the user will comply with the FCRA; (3) to provide users with a summary of consumers’ rights under the FCRA; (4) to provide notices of users’ obligations under the FCRA; and (5) to provide consumers, upon request, with copies of TalentBin’s files about the consumers including the users to whom the profiles were provided and the sources of the information in the profiles.

TalentBin denies that it was a “consumer reporting agency” and that the candidate profiles are “consumer reports” under the FCRA. Therefore, TalentBin denies liability for Plaintiffs’ claims.
