There are many instances, where an employer revokes or withdraws the job offer to the candidate. The main reasons, why such steps are taken may be numerous but the most important is background check. For example, a candidate receives the job offer but the HR department or employer of the organization suddenly comes across felony conviction record of the employee during the background check. In such cases, the company suddenly realizes its mistake and withdraws the job offered. The candidate also do not have any alternative except to accept the decision of the company because, it was already written in the offer letter that any unfavorable report on his background check may loose him his job.
It is wise for the job applicant to understand that in America, all states stipulates that any organization big or small should undertake criminal background check of its employees. The background check of the employee or job applicant includes, past work history, behavioral check, dedication to duties, unruly behavior, quality work performance, identification check and credit records. These checks are also necessary to understand the capacity of the employee, his behavior, work performance and criminal history background and so on. Even most of the job conditions and duties are included in the job offer letter only.
Due to these back ground checks, which may compel the employer to withdraw the employment offer, it is very essential that an employee should state all facts truthfully and honestly while applying for the job or in job application form. The honesty in providing information may also save the employee from many embarrassing situations.
The true facts also helps the applicant challenge the hiring manager for his decision, because many a time due to some recommendations or other reasons, the company withdraws the job offer to admit the recommended candidate by making silly excuses and citing weird reasons for withdrawing the job offer. In such cases due to true information already provided, the applicant leaves little room for the hiring manager to take such course of action.
