When can you be sure that you’re good to go in terms of the new job? I have my independence check finished and laptop shipped. Background check is the only thing missing - would it be a good time for me to put in my 2 weeks? I’m just nervous about putting in my two weeks prematurely in case the new job decides to renege the offer for whatever reason (happened to me before).

did you sign?

Yes I signed weeks ago.

You are never truly safe in a right-to-work environment. You are safer once you actually start, but even not then. At this point with an agreement in place, it is a headache to get out of the offer. If I were laying odds I’d say 50 to 1 you are fine to turn in your notice with no worry.

Should I reach back to the recruiter on decision after I started new job? Would that be a red flag or they see i really like their company? I would join that company if everything's equal but had to start on current role since the other company was dragging feet a but on getting resources for the role.
They might still be waiting for approvals for the role...should I just wait for them or keep talking? Last time HR did say to check back later.
