I started this new job but they keep pushing my start date back, and every time, call the day before my expected start date to tell me I will get a new project with a later start date until my background clears.
So I have a record and I asked if it’s because of that and they said no, they don’t know, they just know it hasn’t cleared and I can’t start until it does.
So I finally started this past Friday and got an email Saturday saying some may not be able to continue they just let us start anyway waiting on the rest of the background checks. Today, Sunday, I got the call saying I can’t come in tomorrow because of the background not clearing yet, and I will be assigned a new project and start date.
It’s because I’m a convict isn’t it? I don’t u first and how they had me submit all these background checks after hiring me and letting me accept the offers and I even got to start. Is this legal? I did not lie; I am honest on all applications FYI .
