Can I initiate a background check, before I quit.

Assuming it’s okay to initiate it, even the ‘potential employer’ contacts my ‘current employer’?
My current employer won’t say potentially, let me go? Or ask me to stop coming into the client site, etc

Check to see if you have an outsourced service for employment checks. Bank loans and such require this and don’t necessarily mean you’re leaving. You would need to provide this info to your new company anyways so best to check ahead
