I am wondering if there is any flexibility on whether a current employer needs to be contacted as a part of the investigation process. This is for high risk public trust.
I am currently employed and have not given notice. I would like to be as discreet as possible with my current employer and wait to give notice. Obviously, if they receive a call out of the blue regarding my new role, it is likely that I will be terminated. Given the potential for the clearance process to be extended many months, I am wondering what the best way to deal with this is. Obviously, if a conversation with my current supervisor is required, I will just have to deal with that, but is there any flexibility for people maintaining other employment during the investigation process?
