I recently got a job offer and I'm in the process of background check.
One previous employment is entered as Jan 1st 2015 to Jan 1st 2015 which is obviously an error or typo from my side or a system error since I don't remember entering those dates in the background check form. My actual dates are from Sep 2015 to December 2015 and I have the same on my resume which I used to apply for the job.
The vendor company which is doing my background check has flagged this as discrepancy after verifying with my previous employer who also gave them the dates Sep 2015 to Dec 2015. Now this Jan 1st 2015 to Jan 1st 2015 which is obviously an error has caused a discrepancy and my background check decision has been made decisional.
Can anyone help me calm down and let me know what could potentially happen, and what steps could I take to clarify this?
