Anyone have experience with having trouble with background checks because you got laid off between when you submitted your job application and got the offer? This might come up and I’m afraid of what to say or do if it does.
This happened back in February, and the
process took a very long time.

Usually when they do background checks they just verify your employment dates so if you got laid off after your applied then your end date should show that. If they ask what happened, tell the truth. Layoffs are a fact of life sometimes, especially as long as Covid continues, and it shouldn't affect their decision - especially at the end of the process when background checks are typically conducted.

Nah - if they ask, I’d just tell them. Just think about the best, honest way to frame it
