Soooooo. I never finished my background investigation when I started here (they were in between contract negotiations with diff. companies). HR came to me with BG invest paperwork today (I guess they finally decided who got the contract) and I can't help but feel some ethical requirement to inform them that I plan on leaving soon... These investigations aren't cheap and I'd feel like a real you-know-what for not telling them, having them pay, and then informing them after... What should I do?
p.s. I am leaving to become a work from home dad so I'm not as worried about reference building as much as just doing the right thing
