Does the federal government have to give you a written notice of a rescinded job offer?
Question Details: The federal government rescinded job offer was told by the manager background check didn't pass. They stated that I needed to call HR, so I did. The HR lady said she just felt due to past charges wasnt suitable but never provided me anything in writing outlining this and I was notified 72 hours before the start date.
No, they do not. Employment, even by the federal (or, for that matter, state or local) government is employment at will. There is no right to a job, or guaranty of a job, and no notice of termination or rescission of a job offer is required. They can withdraw the offer without written notice.
