Maybe Uber Can Get It Right, but... FCRA Lawsuits Loom
FCRA violations loom
Uber has partnered safety data provider Appriss to conduct the checks.
Appriss collects the data (Arrest, Incarcerations, etc.) in real time and then notifies Uber if a driver has a new criminal offense,
Uber then decides whether it wants to suspend the driver based on that data.
'Ultimately what we're looking for...is a way to get the same kind of info as in a background check, but get it in a real-time manner,' Uber vice president of safety and insurance Gus Fuldner said.
