My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: Texas
Iím new to the forum and would greatly appreciate your two cents with regard to my background check situation. Iíve accepted an offer from a prospective employer and agreed to undergo a background check. Well, today I receive a call from the new employer stating that the 3rd party vendor which conducts its background checks spoke with the HR rep from one of my previous employers and that previous employer indicated that they ďdo not have records of my employment in their databaseĒ I was able to clear this up with the prospective employer by furnishing copies of W2s and paystubs but is there any legal recourse that I can take against said previous employer? They are a small company and are very aware of my previous employment with them so Iím confident that this was intentional. Additionally, they never returned my voice message looking to clear the matter up. They tried to pulling a bush league move to hinder my abilities to find good employment. All feedback is appreciated.
