My question involves a background check in the State of:
I applied for and received a verbal and written job offer. I knew from the beginning that there would be a background check (criminal), which was fine because I don't have anything on my record. I thought everything was fine after I received a verbal offer and then a written offer of employment. Then I received a packet of information the next day in the mail (after giving my notice at my current job). They need to complete a full background check on me (criminal, driving, credit) and if it came back "unfavorable" they would "recind the offer". I find this very unnerving as they have already offered the job to me. What's going on with this? I am receiving emails from the team that I will be working with and even went in to interview one of the people who will report to me. They are including me on alot of communications. I find this very odd that they would do a complete background check AFTER the offer has been made and accepted. What if they find something (for example, my credit isn't perfect, but it's pretty good, I think) and "recind" the offer? What recourse do I have?? BTW - this is a reputable organization (higher ed).
