I recently got offered a job with Morgan Stanley and as part of the on boarding process, am required to undergo background verification. I provided all the required documents.
Now, in one of my previous companies(a small consultancy), there was an issue with my joining date. They had incorrectly registered a date two days earlier than my actual date as my date of joining( tentative date as the nearest Monday to my resignation week). I had noticed this when they provided me the relieving letter and had them correct it.
Now, as part of the background verification, the company(a 3rd party) contacted that consultancy and the consultancy told them the wrong date of joining. Apparently, they had not corrected the date in their database and had only edited the letter copy. I contacted my hr (had a kind of gut feeling) in the consultancy and had them correct it on the spot and also write to the 3rd party that they had made a mistake with the date and update them the correct date.
Now, I am plagued with concern that will this be construed as something fishy on my part ? Will it harm my chances there ? Also, if it causes an issue will I be given a chance to explain ?
Edit: I have resigned from my current company and will be joining them end of next month. Also, one of my concerns is that they will tell me that I cannot join because of the background verification and will be left high and dry. Usually if there is an issue when can I expect them to contact with the updates ?
Edit 2: I am based in Mumbai, India.
