I was contacted, offered position with law firm. I accepted. Filled out Application for Background Check. Contacted firm as to start date. Was told something wrong with background check by paralegal and by managing partner. This was 2 weeks after submission of application. Okay 3 weeks later, contacted them again by email and requested copy of background check according to rules of Fair Credit Reporting Act. They told me job is at-will, not contractual, etc. I informed them they made an offer I accepted. What is the problem? The answer came back that Application (although it was received) was never submitted to HR Dept. for a background check. Now, if I had not gone forward with something else and had depended on this job, IS THIS FAIR, to jack me around like this?
