Recorded Webinar - Available On Demand
In an increasingly global marketplace and amid a shortage of talent, organizations are recruiting more applicants who may have lived, studied, and worked abroad. However, less than 15%* of organizations performed background screening on individuals with multi-national residence, education, and/or employment history. And for those actually performing global background checks, more than half of these checks contain a lie or inaccuracy.**
Why aren't more employers running global screens? The international regulatory landscape is complicated by numerous national restrictions and compliance requirements.
Join us as John Tomaszewski, Senior Counsel at Seyfarth Shaw and Dan Shoemaker, Vice President and General Manager of International Business at HireRight, provide insight into the process including how to simplify and streamline help mitigate risk. The topics covered will include:
- The importance of global screening
- An overview of international regulations
- Compliance requirements and restrictions
- Global screening best practices
