Has anyone ever had an issue with a team member not passing project background check for a client?

Depends what it is for. I’ve heard of people failing for marijuana at other firms and just being removed from the project. I’d imagine it depends on the firm, the employees reputation/rating, and the reason for failing the background check.

Yes. Depends on what it's for.

What are potential reasons that you’ve seen?

I was the team member years ago. Wasn't anything I did, but the client's idiot inhouse security people confused me with another dude in the same state with the same first and last name (but different middle initial, age, race, and city) who had a rap sheet a mile long.

I got rolled off about 2 weeks after starting on the project and went right back to the bench.

Client asks us to design a poster for an IMAX movie that features how blockbuster movies are made. One of the key features in the movie is King Kong so we featured it prominently on the poster as well. Client asks seriously whether we need to be concerned about offending an African American audience. I shit you not! Arguably my most jaw dropping moment in this business.
