K-Mart, the mega retailer known for its blue light specials, is paying out $3 million to settle a class action suit for alleged background screening violations. The suit was settled in mediation, and if approved, it will certify a class of 64,506 people. I did the math, and that’s about $18.09 per person, after the named plaintiff gets his share of $5,000 and his lawyers take out their share—$900,000. K-Mart is the latest corporation to settle claims based on FCRA violations in the background screening process, joining First Student, Domino’s Pizza and Capital One.
