My question involves a background check in the State of: Mississippi
Hello, I am new to this board but I need some information and it seems as though quite a few of you have had this problem. I had a felony case expunged about 7 years ago. I recently received a job offer but was recanted after a background investigation showed that this case that is almost 12 years old is still pending; when in face it was dimissed and expunged 7 years ago. I am confused as to why this information is coming up now after I have had numerous background checks for other jobs over the past 7 years that came back with no problems, including and FBI check. I went to the courthouse and was advised that this case was in fact dismissed and expunged and they gave me a letter to give to the employer stating this information. I called the background check company to dispute the information that they gave the company that recanted my job offer and they said I have to go through this formal process of disputing the information. I also spoke with the recruiter for the company and she kind of blew me off b/c she feels as though I am lying about having a pending case or proven felony. I asked that once this incorrect information is cleared up will my job offer be reinstated b/c this was in fact incorrect information and she was like we will discuss that once I get the information from background agency. I am kind of at a stand still and don't know where to go next. I don't know if I need to get another lawyer to fix this or can this be fixed by the background check company verifying with the courthouse that this is in fact incorrect information. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
