  Failure to exercise due diligence when hiring new employees can result in workplace violence, fraud, embezzlement and the legal and financial nightmare that can come from  hiring someone with a false credential or who is not qualified. To avoid bad hiring decisions, employers increasingly turn to pre-employment background screening as a risk management tool.

This webinar will provide an overview of the steps that employers should take to avoid the risk of data protection liability and litigation with employees, works councils, and data protection agencies.  The speakers will focus on:

  • How background checks are used in the EU
  • What tools are used to conduct background checks; (research on the internet, interviews, request for information to former employers or government agencies etc.)
  • Legal framework for each tool (written consent by employee, employment contract etc.)
  • National and EU data protection legislation on background checks
  • Tips on how to avoid negligent hiring
  • Works councils' and union's rights on background checks
