There is no doubt that businesses are becoming international enterprises easier and faster than ever before. This provides for more opportunities, and far more risks. One of those risks is background screening employees in, or from, another country.
Companies are well-aware of the various federal, state, and local laws with which to comply for their background screening needs – the EEOC, FTC, and FCRA, to name just a few. However, dealing with similar laws from other countries is a “foreign concept.” Additionally, not only are there privacy laws to deal with, but cultural nuances that also play a large part in the process. Companies should implement comprehensive screening plans that are flexible enough to take into account varying laws, requirements, and cultural differences. With a plan in place, they can mitigate risks and take advantage of the benefits of increased diversity, including differing skills, creativity, and ideas in the workplace.
