Introduction to International Background Screening

Employers in the U.S. have long recognized that conducting due diligence on new hires with background screening is a mission critical task. However, with the mobility of workers across international borders it is no longer adequate to conduct these background screening checks just in the United States. Background screening also must be done internationally since an increasing number of workers have spent part of their professional careers abroad. The number of countries from which U.S. employers seek information about applicants with International Background Screening is expansive, and includes many countries.

This complimentary whitepaper from Employment Screening Resources (ESR) provides an informative introduction to International background screening, what risks employers conducting such screenings should be aware of, and the many ways background screening overseas differs from background screening in the United States.
