Start date got pushed by a week because background check won't finish on time. Anyone have experience with this? I already have an end date at my current job. I asked for the firm to make me whole. Any chance that could actually happen?

Sorry, what does “make me whole mean?” I mean it’s kind of you for having given notice before your background check was complete. Mine took 6 weeks - not because of the agency but because of waiting on state. Btw if you are in NY you should expect that one week delay to extend each week to 6 weeks…

Offer came last week with a start date of next week, so I acted accordingly.

Doubtful. Your start date is contingent upon successful background check.

Good luck with that.
