To help employers hire the best workers in the world, Attorney Lester Rosen, Founder and CEO of Employment Screening Resources (ESR), will present a webinar with A to Z Compliance on ‘International Background Checks: Global Due Diligence and Legal Compliance’ on February 24, 2016, at 1:00 PM ET / 10:00 AM PT.
“With the mobility of workers across international borders, it is no longer adequate to conduct background checks just in the United States,” says Rosen, author of ‘The Safe Hiring Manual,’ a comprehensive guide to background checks. “With business going global, U.S. firms are having to conduct international background checks as well.”
The 60 minute webinar will introduce employers to international background checks and the practical and cultural challenges employers face when obtaining information outside of the U.S. Topics covered are international criminal records, terrorist databases, and if background checks are needed on applicants with visas. Learning objectives include:
- Learning why international background checks are becoming an important tool for employers.
- Understanding the tools that are available and the limitations to international background checks including international criminal records.
- Learning the legal and privacy aspects of checking international credentials including education verification and employment.
- Understanding the challenges and availability of international criminal records.
The webinar will also cover international employment and education verification, and how to protect against fake international degrees. In addition, employers will learn that although international background checks can be challenging, there are ways to help hire the best regardless of the country involved.
