For more information about the event – which will be held at the Bell Harbor International Conference Center Bay Auditorium, Alaskan Way, Seattle, WA – visit

“With U.S. businesses going global and the mobility of workers across international borders, it is no longer adequate for employers to conduct a background check only in the United States,” says Rosen, author of ‘The Safe Hiring Manual’ and a frequent speaker on background check due diligence issues.

During the 25 minute session, Rosen will explain why international background checks are an important tool for employers and the legal, practical, and cultural challenges employers face when obtaining information outside of the United States. He will also explain the legal and privacy aspects of checking international education and employment credentials, as well as international criminal records.

Rosen has also co-authored a ‘International Employment Background Checks’ module with Lisbeth Claus, Ph.D., Professor of Global HR at Willamette University, and Editor-in-Chief of the Global HR Practitioner Handbook Volumes 1 and 2.  To learn more about International background checks, visit
