I placed a restraining order on my daughter last summer because due to horrible attitude. threats, etc.... She is now interviewing for jobs, Hewlett packard, Oakley, Dick sporting goods and is being turned down for every job. She has great grades and is a good candidate for these jobs. Could it be that they are somehow able to see a restraining order when they check her background? RO is a civil thing In addition, I paid to get a background check printed and she came up clean. Will corporations check on this type of thing before hiring?
Thanks so much. I appreciate your help. In thinking about this more... I would also think that a company would not do a background check just from receiving a resume. I would think they would only go to the expense of doing this after having met and interviewed the candidate, don't you think?? I also read that a candidate must sign a consent before a company does a bc. Is this true?
