International Background Checks: Global Due Diligence and Legal Compliance
Overview : This webinar will introduce employers to international background check, including the legal, practical and cultural challenges employers face when obtaining information outside of the U.S. Among the topics covered are the ins and outs of international criminal records, terrorist databases, and whether background checks are needed on applicants with a visa.
Also covered will be international employment and education verification, and how to protect against fake international degrees. Special emphasis will be placed on data protection and privacy including the rules of the European Union and Canada. Employers will learn that although international screening can be challenging, there are ways to help hire the best regardless of the country involved.
Why should you attend: Employers have long recognized that conducting due diligence on new hires is a mission critical task. Firms cannot afford to be sidetracked by employee problems such as workplace violence, theft, false resumes, embezzlement, harassment or trumped-up injury claims. Employers can be the subject of lawsuits for negligent hiring if they hire someone that they should have known, through the exercise of due diligence, was dangerous, unfit or unqualified.
With the mobility of workers across international borders it is no longer adequate to conduct these checks just in the United States.A significant percentage of the population consists of immigrants. In addition, an increasing number of workers have spent part of their professional career abroad. With business going global, U.S. firms are having to staff up offices internationally as well. The number of countries from which employers seek additional information about applicants is expansive, and includes India, China, Philippines, France, Germany, Russia, Brazil, Mexico, Australia, Japan, Canada, among others.
