We’re not in Kansas anymore.

NotKansas_4978Once an organization recruits from outside the U.S. a close understanding of a country’s local legal and cultural environment is needed before undertaking any sort of background check. The fact is, the concept of background screening candidates outside the U.S. is still very much a new business concept and the legal and cultural landscape varies from one country to another. What is legal in one country doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s legally permissible or even culturally acceptable in another.

There are very few specific laws governing background screening around the globe today, however various pieces of legislation cover parts of the background check process. These areas include privacy, employment, consumer reporting, human rights, legal access to and use of criminal records, financial data, and rehabilitation of ex-offenders, sex, family discrimination, and disabilities to name a few.
