I accepted a job with a new company.I was given a start date and told to resign from my current job. My start date was September 23rd. The day before I was to start I received an email from the company saying my background check was incomplete and that my new start date was September 29th. After talking to Human Resources and giving them phone numbers and as much information as I could they still needed more that I did not have. I had to go to Social Security and get a print out of my work history. I paid 136.00 for this and now I'm still waiting to hear back from them. I was originally told that the background check wouldn't be an issue since there are no issues. No criminal history nor even a ticket.
I feel that it very odd that I had to give the company doing the background check all the information. I've had 2 other background checks done this year alone and I didn't have to give any information.They found it on their own. I've now been out of work for almost 2 weeks and still do not know what's going on. Do I have any recourse?
