Group One background checks in Texas - Page 14Register Today!
- Apr 11, '06 by gauge14ivDont talk to people on the phone - do it all in writing. Use form letters. Do not be tempted to add your own words. You can find these form letters in various web sites and books and software packages geared towards people who are trying to rebuild their credit. Don't call, don't use email, just send it all by snail mail and certified. The letter goes to the credit reporting agency - not the employer. DO NOT CALL THE EMPLOYER AND PUT THEM ON WARNING THAT YOU INTEND TO DISPUTE!
There is no way it should cost 2500 for an atty to write a letter - thats just gar'bage - call around! Tell them all you want them to do is write a letter. You don't want to retain them. If the letter doesn't work (it will) THEN you might be interested in retaining them.

- I did not tell the HR lady I was going to dispute anything, I asked her what I could do and she said, "nothing really, you could dispute it but I will dispute yours and I have a certified letter you signed for as First Initial and Last name on 05/07/2004." I racked my brain on this!!!! Could I have been so careless to sign for something and not read it or lose it. So, I looked at back at a calendar. On that specific day, I was taking my final in nursing school at the campus with my fellow students, teachers, and my children were in daycare. Not only that, but my husband was doing some yard work for a Masonic Lodge that day..................NO ONE WAS HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That God for check registeries!!!!!!!!!!!!! So, IF indeed there was a letter, I could have not signed for it nor received it. So, on this info alone................I would think I would have somewhat a little more of a leg to stand on. Because now on that date, I have numerous witnesses.
- P.S. I cannot thank you enough!!!!!! Even if it does not work, I sincerely appreciate your time and knowledge. I wish you only the best in all your endeavors.
- Apr 11, '06 by Kim O'TherapyQuote from RN34TXI know this may sound ignorant on my part, but WHY does a potential employer need to know my credit history? It doesn't seem fair.I've heard that before too but I still think it's a crock and could be challenged in court. There is a reason why there are laws in place preventing previous employers from saying bad things about you to potential new employers. Thats' why your new hospital can't just call up your old employer and ask certain questions about you. Hence to get around this, Group One comes in and saves the day.
The fair credit reporting act deals with FACTS such as how many days late you paid Visa and how many credit cards and loans you have out or how much these loans are. FACTS.
Group One reports subjective data like "Poor/substandard performance"- no facts to back up this blanket statement of course but that's good enough for the DFW hospitals.
- It's not so much your credit info. DFW has a "big brother" for hospitals, except if your nurse manager does not like you.....................get ready for a WHOLE lot of hell!! Research all these threads, you will see what is going on.
- Apr 12, '06 by sunnyjohnI did it myself. I only used the atty' as a threat. My letters worked so I never needed a lawyer.
- Apr 12, '06 by leigh21The form letters? I have seen a few web sites on them, I am trying to find one now. The 2 I have seen so far are $70, is that right? I am not trying to "rebuild my credit." I am trying to dispute this thing with the form letters. Can you shed some light??
- Apr 15, '06 by J'sGirl82this is why i'm seriously thinking of not going to nursing school, after all this time, and all this work, to finish pre-req's and stuff. i'd like to know who exactly owns this corporation, and what their sole purpose in life is. scum. i'm sorry to those of you whom this affects, i have read the expantion plans, however, there are many different faucets to this business, i pulled up their company profile and such. this is a current list of the people whom they provide their "prestigious" service to :

i guess, i wouldn't work for anyone who uses this crack heads. it sucks for the patients, but, you know.......everybody deserves to be treated like a human, not scrutinized like a freeking drunken monkey ( i did change my words here :angryfire ) as for the la, thing. it applies only to the rn/lvn's and such that had to relocate because of the hurricanes, and sought employment in texas, primarily in the dfw area.
the fact of the matter is dfwhc, owns group one, they've made this nightmare a reality.
good luck ladies !Last edit by J'sGirl82 on Apr 15, '06 : Reason: Not enough room
