Background checks may be delayed due to Courts affected by holidays, budget Cuts and weather

California among the states hit hard

By Jim Crockett, Employment Screening Resources

Many courts throughout the US are closed or delayed due to holidays, budget cuts and weather.  In California , there are going to be three court closures in a row as flollows:  

Friday Feb 12th – Lincolns Birthday
Monday Feb 15 – Washington’s Birthday

Wednesday Feb 17th – Court Furlough

This will delay the completion of background reports for all employers that are requesting backgrond checks that include a California compnent.
