Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Welcome and thank you for your question!
Our chat has ended, but you can still continue to ask me questions here until you are satisfied with your answer. Come back to this page to view our conversation and any other new information. What happens now? You can reply to me using the box below.
In order to assist you, it would be helpful to know:
1. In what country is the employer located?
2. When was the job offer rescinded?
3. Was there an error in your credit report? Or did the report show an unpaid debt and you have now since paid it?
I look forward to your reply.
No error in credit report. I had charge-offs that were cleared in full and now no outstanding debt. It was cleared just around the time the background check was being done. The reason cited was I am financially irresponsible. I want to write a letter stating the reasons for me being in that state, but to know that I have no outstanding debt and have more to offer that the offer should not be rescinded. I want a good concluding statement in my letter that would state the above in a convincing mannerEmployer in UK. Offer rescinded recently.
Yes. But the employer is a global firm headquartered in UK.
They conducted the check using my ssn given and got my US credit report.
offer rescinded a few days ago. charge offs cleared a month and 1/2 ago. I may not have a chance of changing their decision but I want to write a powerful concluding statement in the hope that they will.
they also had my permission to obtain my credit report.
Yes. Proof was given from creditors that chargeoffs were paid before they rescinded.
First, that my recent poor credit is not an indicator of my lack of financial responsibility and it was brought on by extenuating circumstances which I did mention also at the time of background check. Second, my skills and personal integrity..I just want to rehash this explicitly as a final/last ditch effort to see if they will reconsider and reconsider their decision..because i was selected from a very select few.
I just need the last few lines in my letter that will make them revisit this...a good last line.
no outstanding debt..no partial settlement, paid in full. no more family medical expenses that came suddenly and unplanned..prior to this good credit history.. thats all i have
Dont have any yet as im in b-school..but eventually will.
not applying just wanting to respond so they reconsider the "decision to rescind".
i wish i knew..i know their reason was im not financialy responsible..but iv paid it off now..reasons they hired me..best fit ,
its a big investment bank..so how can i convince them..
I know the importance of demonstrated financial responsibility, but how can i convince them about overlooking my one-off slip-up? any ideas?
that i will not use investors money to fund my financial issues? but i cannot imagine there is no employee in a fin firm who did not have some sort of credit issue..
