I am a contractor, therefor, I barely come into contact with a lot of co-workers. When my background investigator met with me, he asked for a few co-workers that he could meet with. I gave him my boss, and one other co-worker with whom I knew “the best”.
I was advised that the investigator called my co-worker. Great news! Except my co-worker is now giving every excuse why he won’t return his phone call.
If he happens to never call him back or meet with him, does this harm me in any way? Should I reach out to my investigator and let him know that my co-worker is basically avoiding being spoken to about this?
(The co-worker knew in advance I was using him as a reference and was ‘okay’ with it, I really have no idea why right now this is an issue)
