California Background Checks and the Recession and Court Closures

According to the web site for the California courts, there will be monthly court closures.  The site indicates that: 

Due to the unprecedented statewide fiscal crisis, the Supreme Court of California, the Courts of Appeal, and all superior courts will be closed the third Wednesday of every month, beginning September 16, 2009. See: 

The impact for employers is that California background checks will be delayed by one day where a search is required for a California court.  Where an employer is also waiting for an educational or employment verification as well, the closure hopefully will not delay the overall report, since a report can only be completed as fast as each of the individual components.  Nevertheless, the court closures may potentially affect some employers seeking to fill a job quickly.

ESR will keep employers notified of any changes in the court’s policy, Employer may also encounter similar recession caused court decays elsewhere in the U.S.
